Dates: Friday 21st to Sunday 23rd July 2017 from 6pm on Friday
Event: Hornsea Carnival
Location: Hall Garth Park, Hornsea
Amount raised: £729.06

This was our 5th year attending the Hornsea Carnival but sadly the weather impacted on the events. The usual firework display on the Friday evening had to be cancelled due to the wind speed, then it was raining through the night and into the Saturday morning which meant a late start for us. The rain eventually stopped around lunchtime and once the parade ended the crowds flocked into the park and we were very busy.

The fireworks were scheduled for the Saturday evening so we were all prepared for a late finish but, in true British summer style, the heavens opened and down came the rain. We had no choice but to pack up for the evening and even though it was raining they still went ahead with the firework display but only a small amount of people turned out for this.

Sunday turned out to be not to bad a day and we had a steady stream of visitors to the stall. Obviously it started to rain as we were packing up but all in all we ended up having a very good weekend.

And the crowds came...
