Reply To: Bun Festival 2007 – rainy start but hot main day

Better weather today; but as yet, not too many visitors. Seems about every other shop along the waterfront and streets has Bun Festival souvenirs for sale. I was told by one shop owner that a newspaper had reported a store selling souvenirs made good profit last year – so now, seems about everyone has jumped on the bandwagon!

Real buns were for sale, too.

Photographers were about, taking Bun Festival related photos (assume the ace photographer position – a slight crouch!)

Meanwhile , the climbing tower and its plastic buns looked rather lonely in the football pitch.
