This was the re-run for the cancelled March event. These iconic fairs are usually held in February and March so this was an 'unknown' for the Rotary organisers who have been holding this event for 35+ years. And as our 1st time it was also an unknown to us.
The entire central town is closed off for the day and 450 odd stalls take over the square and neighbouring streets - it looks something like this...
We heard that shopper numbers were down and crowds were less but if that's the case I would hate to think what it's like at full numbers! It was AMAZING.
|A town transformed with 450+ stalls and 25,000 people!|

Stalls in every street off The Square
|The one chance I got to take photos of my stalls when customers were just starting to arrive. Very happy with the way my mothers paintings added to the overall look of the stall - she can come back!|
My last customer of the day gave a broad smile and announced - 'See you Next Year' ..... Yes, yes you will!
