Festival comings and goings


The second weekend of Saltaire Festival always sees the crowds out in force. This year, the main music stage was moved down into Roberts Park. No doubt many village residents were pleased, as it's not a lot of fun having people perched on your windowsill, drinking, whilst loud rock music throbs into every space. So the change was welcome in many ways but the downside was that I think it diluted the festive atmosphere in the centre of the village. Nevertheless, it didn't deter the crowds, as you can see from this shot of Victoria Road. There was still lots on offer in the village - the continental market, a few street artists, a vintage fair and music at Caroline's, among other attractions.

  1. Looks like fun! I love this photo...with things off in the distance and things in the forefront, too! What a lovely place!

  2. You have captured the bustle of a festival. It is a coincidence that it is The Brisbane Festival at the moment too but a city festival is not as cosy as a village one.

  3. Wow. I don't think this village could squeeze another visitor into it.
