Cranbrook Family Fun Day 5 June 2011

I checked the Met Office weather forecast and it said it wasn’t going to rain until 4pm. The rain started at 11:26, just as we were lining up behind the fire engine to start the parade. In true British style, this didn’t seem to put off the local community, however, who still turned up, umbrellas and pac-a-macs to hand, to Have Fun, as they had planned to do that day. Samba in the rain is soggy, but still fun, and heartening to see everyone enjoying it and cheering us on. Random carnival sights for this fete included:
  • a blue and orange octopus
  • fake wounds
  • alpacas
  • children floating in giant bubbles
