I absolutely love this weekend of the year in my home town! Middlewich comes alive for the Folk and Boat Festival with a colourful array of canal boats and boating folk, lots of Morris dancers, random people singing and dancing, and of course, the Rose Fete.
I just love a festival, and this one is right on my doorstep. In fact, I walk past the boats almost every day as I take my elder daughter to pre-school and take the dog for a walk. Today the canal is crammed, I have seen the fudge boat, the sweet shop boats, the craft boat, the traditional working boats, oh and even a jacket potato boat, and one selling home brew beer. Fantastic!
Preparing for Middlewich Rose Fete
Today I am preparing my daughter’s fairy costume for her appearance as a fairy attendant in the Rose Fete parade. It will be the first time in 3 years that her dad is off work for the festival, so she is doubly excited that he can watch her do the fairy dance. If you are near to Middlewich, come along at 11am and cheer us on. I’ll be the crazy mummy dancing around in fairy wings to encourage the children! Have a fabulous weekend my friends…
