There was not a single person that could say they were bored in Folkestone this weekend as there was so much going on. Saturday we had the yearly Charivari Festival, the costumes are amazing and get bigger and better every year. Many of the local schools get involved also the various groups. It goes right through the town with many more people lining the route or following from the back. Music is fantastic and it really is a happy event and made even better by the fantastic weather we are having, long may it continue.
The tall ships were moored up at The Harbour Arm making it a beautiful sight, the ships always appear so elegant to me, I would love to go for a trip on one. The music was great on the Arm and all free entertainment, well apart from a beer and some seafood, which is a must have if you are at the beach. I do not think I have seen The Harbour Arm so packed, there was people everywhere having a good time.
If that wasn’t enough there was the flyover from the old planes, which I watched from my garden. Folkestone is really coming alive this summer with so many attractions and places to visit, I love living here and so pleased all my children and the ten grandchildren all live within walking distance as there is nothing better than family.
