Today was the Hornsea Carnival parade. Not quite the spectacle of Rio or Notting Hill. More a celebration of English quaintness.
We saw three bears accompanying a juvenile offender.
We saw Morris Dancers. For non-English readers Morris Dancing is a form of folk dancing where you tie ribbons and bells to yourself and prance around. It isn’t generally an activity you’d admit to on a first date or for that matter in the first year of a relationship.
There were a lot of craft stalls: wood carving, rope making and jam, chutney and pies.
In the arena area we saw a bird of prey show. However the bird wasn’t having any of it mainly deciding to sit in the trees.
At the side the birds rested on their perches. It was nice seeing these fantastic feathers fiends for free.
Live music played at the bottom of the hill with a eclectic mix of covers from Green day to Van Morrison
Back at home Alice still wanted to be a butterfly with her backpack on. Tomorrow the carnival is still on so we’ll see what other eccentricities we see.
