Vintage funfair & big boats at the Ipswich Maritime Festival

This weekend I went to the Ipswich Maritime festival and spent a scorchingly hot day wandering around the docks doing a spot of shopping, eating lovely treats and enjoying fantastic entertainment. There were morris dancers, soul singers and sea-faring fiddlers, alongside characters in traditional Victorian dress: a little like ghosts wandering through the crowds, slightly scary but very impressive costumes and I was especially impressed that some were in full military regalia on such a hot day!

I enjoyed the vintage fun fair and took a good number of photos of the wooden helter-skelter and the beautifully painted carousel.

 

And I even climbed onboard a few boats and loved this traditional Thames Sailing Barge – it was huge inside and I would quite comfortably live on-board!

    

All in all it was a good day out and the weather was amazing! I’ll definitely being going again next year, and if you can get to Ipswich next August, I’d recommend it for a fun and free family day out 🙂
