Having had a our lunch, we strolled down to check out the Arts Fresco Event in Market Harborough. It was the second year for this event and there were acts from all over the country and Europe. What was also wonderful, was the fact that the whole town got involved. Shops, restaurants, cafe's and much more opened for the day, making it a splendid affair for all. It was hoped that they would top the 20,000 who turned up last year. The hope was more than 25,000 would turn up to support the towns efforts. Keith and I caught up with a few of the people from Hfm again. Moley was very busy blowing up balloons at one point.
Lord of the Bins..... This was quite ironic because the litter bins provided were all full of rubbish. They really needed someone to come around and empty them at certain times, during the fabulous event. The crowds of people were treated to some wonderful street entertainers. Some a little stranger than others. This mechanical Elephant paraded through the town and look magnificent. It was well worth the stroll.
