Crowds turn out for Magna Vitae

Crowds turned out in force in Caistor Market Place earlier this evening (Sunday, October 2, 2016) for the Magna Vitae Wolds Arts Festival.

The weather was unseasonably mild for past 5pm in October, and people of all ages joined in with the culture event, jointly sponsored by West Lindsey District Council and the Magna Vitae Trust.

A puppet parade by the Primary School had a nautical feel, to continue the children’s theme of singing sea shanties and other songs originating from Lincolnshire.

Later there was a light show against some of the taller buildings in the Market Place, with music from a professional orchestra, flame bursts, fireworks and streamers.
