Today in our village was Gala Day.
This is an annual event where the local schools decorate floats, children (& some adults!) dress up and everyone follows the procession to the local park for fun at the fair.
My childrens' school decided this year that their float would celebrate the sixties. There were hippies, mods, rockers and astronauts abound!
Lily, my 9 year old daughter, decided to dress up as a hippy.
Here she is with 2 of her friends (Lily is on the left).
Within 30 minutes the sun was shining again.
We made it to the park, Lily disappeared with her friends and my two boys enjoyed themselves on the fairground rides.
