This time the weather was good and the festival was great!
Thousands of revellers lined the streets and poured onto the park for the rain-delayed Leyland Festival.
The festival was postponed in July after days of torrential rain and volunteer organisers were hugely relieved it remained fine for the re-arranged event this weekend.
On Saturday thousands of spectators lined the streets for the parade which included 143 vehicles and 60 motorcycles, while on the park visitors have enjoyed a host of attractions including a funfair, 40 stalls, cooking competitions and paws on the park.
Stephen Bullock who is chairman of the organising committee said: “When we had to postpone it in July lots of events were cancelled full-stop but we made a commitment it would happen.
“Picking this weekend in late September was always a gamble but we have been lucky with the weather.
“Through the whole experience we have had the Dunkirk spirit.
“We lost the battle in July with the weather but we won the war by having it in September.”
Next year’s event will take place during the first weekend in July and the team of volunteers has already started planning.
He said: “I would really like to thank everybody involved in it, I am very grateful.”
