St John's Street Fair

We started the day by stopping off at our friend, Jo's stall for coffee and cake:
And I couldn't resist taking some photos of her shop window:
Later I did go in and buy some red spotted lidded bowls, some dolly pegs and some gorgeous vintage design napkins
Could have bought loads more but maybe another day.

Then it was off to the top of the street where it meets the main part of Bury for the first dance.

In the background of the photo above , you will see Jo again - this time playing fiddle in the band that plays for the dancers.
After the dancers had finished we went to one of the pubs for lunch and then it was back for more dancing and scaring of the crowd.
We ended the day listening to the Bounty Hounds
And yes, you are right.....there is Jo again - one very talented lady.

It was a super day despite it raining several times
