Camping- Orsett Showground
But anyway, trying not to moan too much about the catering, the next day we had a centenary parade- each district were supposed to dress up as a decade, only we didn't find out ours until the morning of the parade- this is where my artistic talent came in and within an hour, together we had made everybody paper number tags so we would look like Olympic runners for our decade (2010-2020). I must say that some of the groups had really tried with their costumes, but ours were the best for the timeline we had to make them.
The parade was followed with a fayre which had some entrainment and was open to the public- there were some dog shows and dancing in the main arena, and quite alot of old fayre games- like the wet sponge 'stock' games and hook the duck etc- so i thoroughly enjoyed it. There was also a very large sweet stall where i spent the majority of my money. It was so hot though that it was quite hard to enjoy anything without wanting to lay down or have a drink. Also, stupidly, after making all of the guides put loads of sun cream on, i forgot to put any on myself, so i finished the weekend slightly crisp and very red.....
