Petts Wood May Fayre Parade 2014

Lovely to see such a large band today for the Petts Wood May Fayre parade - for many members their first time parading! Well done everyone.

Bloco Fogo were back again leading the May Queen parade around the streets of Petts Wood through to the Memorial Gardens. A great, typically English, May Fayre bought to life with an injection of sun and Samba. More crowds than ever this year, in some part helped by the superb weather.

Let's hope we return again next year.

Petts Wood May Queen Parade

Back again for another year at the Petts Wood May Queen Parade. And what a great day, the event grows year on year and the streets were busier than ever with people out to take in the spectacle. The sun shone, the sounds of drumming filled the air and the crowds applauded. After a parade through the streets we had another impromptu play in the park, where we we so close to the audience they could feel us !
A great family day - watch out for us again next year, hopefully we will be back.

Some superb photos of this event ... thanks to Steve, who was taking a break from playing caixa.
