Purton Carnival and Fete – 4th July 2015

A group of us met in the car park of The Prince of Wales pub in Wootton Basset and set off in convoy to this Purton event. It wasn't too hard to find and I spotted a farm shop next to it.

We pitched up the gazebo and the weather was quite good. I walked to the village where everyone was lining the streets waiting for the carnival procession to come by. There were a couple of floats and groups of school children in various forms of fancy dress.

There was a central ring with various acts - dancing, dog shows, etc. There was also a very impressive music school for young people playing a variety of guitars and drums - in some cases the instrument was larger than the musician!

There was an interesting collection of vehicles and I think we had the most vehicles in a club and certainly the largest collection of minis!

The weather was good enough to get the shorts on and sun-tan lotion out.
