Assembly started at 1.00 pm at the western end of the High Street and
many of the local organisations were there to promote both the Festival
and their own particular interests. In addition there was ladies and gentlemen
from all over the UK, the author met people from Llandrindod Wells (central
Wales), London and Leeds and I'm sure that was only the tip of the iceberg.
1.45 pm and the parade is off to a start.
(note: clicking on any picture below will provide a bigger one!)
The parade terminated in the Vicarage Gardens in St. Brannocks Road
where Cream Teas, Sideshows, Swing Boats, Stalls and a variety of other
amusements were available.
Of necessity only a few scenes from both these events is shown. Far, far more than you see takes place during, and after the Saturday parade.
In the evening, still at the Vicarage Gardens the local 'American Line Dancers' entertained the revellers with a demonstration of their art. In addition, so that the visitors wouldn't go hungry sausages, faggots, mushy peas and punch was made available.
