Farnham High Street gets Attacked!

Hi folks,
last weekend we attended the Farnham Carnival which had a theme of Disney, Super Heroes and Fairy Tales, it's an annual event in Farnham.  The Surrey MCC group put on a rally to coincide with the Carnival weekend, camping in the park at the top on the hill close to Farnham Castle, we were able to walk into the town.
Thanks again to the group for a fantastic weekend and although we spent a lot of time dodging the rain the event stayed dry and the Carnival was a huge success.
I studied the map and went to three locations on the route starting at Upper Hart Car Park then followed the route into the town and ending up at the Gostrey Meadow with a Fair going on throughout the weekend.

Star Wars attack on the High Street.

Couple of the guys setting up in the car park.

Turtle alert!

Captain Mainwaring leading the parade...................

Off he goes in his little car. (I'm in charge)

101 Dalmatians, great costumes.

Batman, doing his thing.

How do you keep the mask on the dog?

Some of the characters getting ready for the off.

People who have seen the film will identify this strange object.

Parade will follow, we had a great time and the rain stayed away, see you soon, Mike
