the whole town stops for a weekend.
the children in the community parade along the main street with their schools and local clubs on Saturday morning and the street is lined with hundreds of spectators.
from then the festivities begin until the bands stop playing at around 10pm on Sunday night.
everywhree you turn there is someone you know, all happy all involved in the community. whether it be helping on stalls, face painting, watching bands, watching children sing, selling local handmade craft, food and wares, watching artists and craftsmen showcase their talents, billy cart races, kids duck race, watching the children on the scout water slide or just simply sitting under a tree watching the world go by.
we spent the weekend amongst it for 2 full days and we are all happy yet tired.
i wouldn't change where i live for the world.
