Mazey Day 2017


Managed to take some nice shots of the parades, but it felt curiously lacking this year.  Many of the crafty stalls have disappeared and it has been filled with New Age clothing (which I like - but there were many stalls like this and no wood carvings/glassware/puppets etc of previous years).  Plus they have seemingly cut down on their live music.  I suspect most of it was on the Promenade and will continue to be so tonight and tomorrow.

Photos can be seen HERE

It's always a disappointment when something shifts. We used to love to go to the asparagus festival here and look at all the arts and crafts and then it became more like a flea market.

Thanks for the photos and I hope that the rest is a gas! I adore the sea gull's wings. And the nod to the Hawaiians!

It was - it gets very crowded though and my youngest son found it a bit claustrophobic. The moving imagery is amazing, though.

Hold on - I will find you some footage of previous years (also, if you go back into my flickr page, you will see the carnival from past years - all very colourful).

The MONTHS they spend building these things.... I LOVE EM.... am a real baby when it comes to floats and carnivals (the right sort - like local ones - not the Brazilian flash jobs)

Hope you're having a bloody fabulous birthday darling. Honestly.... oh wowo and only twenty one again!!!!! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
