Today the sun stayed out long enough for a visit to the local “Art in the Park” festival in Leamington Spa.
There was LOADS going on, I was surprised how much!
There was of course some obligatory Yarn bombing! 🙂
The Three Graces
Leamington is currently making a big thing of “the Three Graces”, three elephants who used to live here with their trainer Samuel Lockheard in the late 1800’s they were called “Haddie, Trilby and Wilhelmina”. more here…
As a result, the theme of the Art in the Park Festival this year was elephants and there were lots about! Including these three, which children could paint…!
And this one that they couldn’t…!
“No, we’re not having one of these”, my other-half made a point of saying, as we walked past this lady spinning some yarn! 🙂 shame……!!
There was lots of stuff for the kids to do, including circus skills, make your own juggling ball, face painting, etc…and this random, yarn-tangling place, I REALLY wouldn’t want to have to untangle this!
Music and Food..and crochet!
There was also music and plenty of street food stalls. I spotted this cool hat whilst I was eating my lunch!
Hula Hooping anyone…?
After eating, we went to have a play in the hula hoop area, its amazing how some circular pieces of plastic can keep people of all ages happy, from 2 to 82! 🙂 I saw everyone having a go….even had a go myself! It was fun!!
All in all, a good day was had in the park in Leamington!
