I enjoyed it immensely!!
Sure there were lots of stalls......and so? What else would one have, along the river-walk? The stalls were not predominantly selling jewelery - there were all sorts of crafts - and many were factual/informative stalls about the river, ecology etc.
There was a good stage in Potters Field and some excellent food stalls. My Boar Burger was delicious!!
The Carnival itself was superb and the sheer exuberance of those taking part was as large and bright as the costumers.
The Fireworks were as good as fireworks ever are, these days - noisy and colourful - and my friends and I repaired to the Founders Arms
, where we laughed about the day, and life.
How do you see the Festival shaping, if you were organising it?
I don't want to discuss our 'Mayor'......
