Five on Friday - Carnival Reflections

Hello

Thanks for visiting.

I was rather surprised that my Five on Friday - Valentine Reflections was so popular in February, so with our village Carnival starting this weekend, I thought you might like to see our shops again, this time decorated in the theme Myths and Legends. The sun out, the windows reflect the shops on the other side of the road as well.

One - Carnival Procession Route

All the floats will parade along the High Street.


Two - Decorated Shop Window Competition

Quite a few shops entered into the Carnival spirit.

The Butchers

Furnishing shop

Hairdressers

Travel Agent

Sweet shop


Charity shop

Hairdressers

Cobblers

Medusa, can you see the snakes?

Shoe shop

Empty shop - not much of a display ha ha

The judges with their clipboards. I wonder who will win.
 Three - Empty Recreation Ground

This is where the procession ends and the grass will be full of stalls and entertainments.  The grass looks beautifully green with all our rain, but sadly rain is expected again on the day.


Four - Cyclist

You won't be able to see but this chap is uni-cycling too quick for me to snap!


Five - Flower Mosaic

A few flowers on the way to the village.


Have a great week and thanks to Amy for the link-up.

  5. I love carnivals and festivals that are lovely. A nearby town celebrated the Fresh Water Festival last weekend in honor of the many lakes, ponds and streams in our area. It was a lot of fun. Thanks for sharing the shops with us again. I enjoyed window browsing!
