Up at 6 this morning for festival prep. Will be there about 9:45 in time for the 10 o’ clock cemetery tour.
Last night the event started off with an excellent fireworks display at 10 pm, from the culm bank so I hear. I obtained a good view from my west window. Today, areas of Market Street will be blocked off and some hunting will need to be done for a parking space close to the action. In about an hour, we’ll be hearing the church bells signaling the official start of the festival.
I’ll be uploading photos of various festival scenes once I get home.
