Relaxing afternoon at Mardi Gras festival
Caistor was blessed with glorious weather yesterday afternoon (Sunday, July 2, 2017) for the second day of Caistor Goes Mardi Gras.
Hundreds of visitors stretched out on the grass of South Street Park and sunbathed as music played and children took part in mask-making workshops.
Parents of young children praised organisers for laying on free rides on a pirate-themed swing boat and a carousel, with many saying they had come to the park for both days of the festival.
Members of Regency Dance, who were dressed in elaborate period costume, and children from Jade Dancefever, entertained the crowds. Catering was provided by Caistor Lions, and live music and a parade were also expected later on in the afternoon.
