Penrith Droving Festival- 26/10/19

It’s that time of the year again to don the masks and head to Penrith to enjoy the festival atmosphere. First stop though is a phenomenal afternoon tea , to celebrate Sally’s birthday, at the Brunswick yard cafe. It was DELICIOUS!! Do treat yourselves.

Even Evie enjoyed it as she had milk to drink from a proper bottle!!

The masks are in – Evie refuses to wear hers, but we enjoyed wearing ours.

We danced to the music , which was very fun.

Evie drove a train at the fairground

We bumped into Paula and Sam and had a little boogie together.

After visiting some stalls and doing some shopping , the Droving started with some entertainment by the fire dancing girl.

Then it was all bells and whistles, drums and bands who processed through the town centre.

Lots to look at….

Or not look at – Evie suddenly felt heavy, and for the first time ever fell asleep on my shoulders

Time to head home – where we could enjoy candles and cake

Happy birthday Sally!
