Sunny Saturday In Shepley.

After spending a good bit of this week lazing in the sun reading and drinking endless coffees We decided to head out today and enjoy an afternoon at Shepley Spring Festival.




 There were various different troupes of dancers..morris dancers, clog dancers, sword dancers, highland dancers..



There was a great craft tent selling all sorts of beautiful handcrafted items and oppurtunities to craft something yourself.

                                         Evie making a necklace.
                                           
 And of course no fete,fair or festival is complete without the obligatory candy floss stand.



We just didn't expect to get the biggest stick of candy floss ever! But We persevered and ate every scrap...

Hope everyone else is having a lovely weekend too.

That is a huge candyfloss. It looks almost as big as Evie.

We seem to have a lot of morris dancers around here. Maybe its the cider. They are always fun to watch.

Hi Em. Looks like you had beautiful weather for the Spring Festival. It looks like it was a perfect day. I love Cotton Candy, as we call it over here but I have never ever seen one half that size. I would have been tickled pick. I rarely ever get one since they're usually only at fairs.

Hugs....Tracy

Biggest candyfloss EVER. FACT.

So funny, some friends of mine were in Shepley this weekend too. I love a bit of morris dancing, there's always morris dancers in the village near my sister and we go and see them on Boxing Day. I feel for them in those black tights though - they must have been roasting!
