Rain Fails To Dampen Spirits
Hawes Gala Committee
Hawes Gala went ahead in spite of rain and high winds. The gala field could not be used but the organizers decided to proceed rather than let down the locals and visitors who had turned out to enjoy the warm welcome and fun atmosphere which characterizes the show in the lovely town of Hawes in upper Wensleydale.
At 8am the main marquee was in danger of blowing away and so it was decided to move the event indoors. Local pubs and Hotels opened their doors and stalls and entertainment was set up wherever space could be found. It was tight but it worked.
This years theme was Pirates and local shops and businesses had entered into the spirit of things by decorating their premises with pirate flags, parrots and other pirate paraphernalia.
The parade went ahead in the rain and many local children as well as some adults had entered the fancy dress competition.
Following the parade everyone went inside for the judging of the fancy dress, a band display and entertainment including Punch and Judy, Balloon Modelling, Juggling and a Pirate Food Tasting Competition.
Well done the Gala Committee for being so determined to make sure everyone had a great time under such difficult conditions!
