Good morning from a wet and miserable Hastings.
After a week of warm and sunny weather it has now turned to heavy rain. Just for the blossom parade. So I won’t be going as I don’t want to get ill again. So I searched through one of my hard drives and found these photos of the blossom parade in 2006 in sunnier times.
I also think it goes well with this weeks theme by the Daily Post – humanity. Usually the town is packed and the atmosphere is just so happy and cheerful and just full of colour.
And this is my gorgeous daughter aged 10 dressed in an old girl guide uniform as they were celebrating 100 years of the movement.
There are hundreds of hours put in behind the scenes cutting up crepe paper and making the blossoms, and then gluing them on the floats. The council does award prizes but that is not the point as the prizes don’t cover the money and effort to go into making these floats. All in the community spirit.
Thanks for visiting.
