Harlow Carnival

I used to love carnival processions but the town stopped for years then when it restarted we missed it for a couple of years. We decided to go today but it was pouring!  It started across town and finished in the town park near to us. We watched the start live on Facebook but there didn't seem many floats. Anyway we eventually dragged ourselves and the dog out into the rain. The last float was pulling into the park.

It was a shame the weather was so awful as the participants must have worked hard.

The main event of a free concert was cancelled but music was coming from the beer tent which we couldn't enter with the dog. There were still quite a lot of people around in good spirits and the dog enjoyed being petted.

We had a look round and then retreated to ds and ddil's nearby.

Probably not a good idea to hold an event on bank holiday weekend when it usually rains!

  1. It's too bad that the weather didn't cooperate with the parade event. I'm glad you went to see it as the participants would be so sad if no-one turned up. Nice to meet you! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
