Crowds flock to Whittlesey Festival for day full of music, dancing and entertainment
Crowds flocked to the Whittlesey Festival on Sunday for a day full of family-fun activities.
Beginning at 10am with a parade from the Whittlesey Christian Church in Broad Street, families were able to enjoy rides and attractions, many of which were free. The wide-range of entertainment included Ukrainian Cossack dancers, free face painting, more than 150 classic vehicles, an art exhibition, puppet shows, sport taster sessions, magic shows, crazy golf, fairground rides, a land train and more than 120 stalls. Marija Lysak, on behalf of the festival committee, said: “We were absolutely delighted with the whole day. The performers excelled themselves, and for the visitors there was something for everybody. People lined the streets for the parade and were waving and cheering. We would like to thank everybody who came and we hoped they enjoyed themselves. We think it was one of the best festivals we have ever had in terms of the feedback and variety of stalls and acts. I’d particularly like to thank the sponsors that enabled many of the children’s activities to be free.”
