Well, it’s May Bank Holiday tomorrow, and you know what that means? Yes! We’re having our May Day fete and fair! Here we are ready to enjoy it all.
Here’s Matilda with her popcorn machine. Micro and Nano are being a bit cautious, they remember how it overflowed before! But Matilda says she’s got the hang of it now.
So they decide to share a bucket of popcorn. That’ll keep them going for a while.
Gino is running the ice cream stand again. Dim says can he have a strawberry cone with a flake please?
Oh, how nice! The ice cream is for Matilda, it’s her favourite flavour and she’s too busy to go and get one.
Gosh, Matilda IS busy, she’s running the candy floss stand too!
Hypno does like candyfloss! Even if he does end up a bit sticky.
Fury can never decide what to have from the Burger Box. Vincent’s looking after it, and suggests she has one of everything?
Arnold of course is always thinking of safety, so he’s checking that Peggy’s tea stall has had the kettle PAT tested.
Hello Winston, says Bernard. No priceless Greek Urns on your bric-a-brac stall today eh? Nah, says Winston, I’ve run out. I mean, no, I’ve not found another one.
Ah, now, games! Ernest is having a go at the Hoop-La. 3 rings please Esther!
Hup! Oh, sorry Esther!
Hup! Oh, sorry Nano! Although you make a good prize!
Right, last hoop, better make this count. Oi! Ernest, that’s cheating!
Right Ernest, let’s have a go at the Tombola. Five tickets please! Oh. I never win!
Winston says business is slow on the the pistachio shy. Arnold says it’s because everyone knows the nuts are glued to the poles!
Well, now, this is new. Madame Fortuna? I wonder what it means? Oh, Ofelia, it’s you! What’s that, you’ve started Fortune Telling? Goodness!
Well! Once word got round, everyone wants their fortune told. There’s such a queue, Arnold is on duty marshalling!
Well, it’s very dark in here. And Madame Fortuna’s crystal ball is glowing very strangely! She told me something, but said I wasn’t to tell anyone else!
Winston is very pleased. Madame Fortuna told him she can see the word Millionaire! Which is odd, because that’s what.. oh. No. I mustn’t say.
Whatever she told Arnold, he’s shocked!
Nano wouldn’t say what she told him, but he said the crystal ball was quite mesmerising and he’ll buy one when he’s a millionaire. Hmmmm.
Now that we all know our fortunes, it’s time for the Maypole Dance!
Round and Round they go! Until… Well, they can’t go any further! Better let go!
Next we settle down to watch Peggy’s Puppet Show. We love this. We always cheer the goodies and boo the baddies!
Finally for the Fete, it’s our Morris dancing troupe! Look how they bash those staves, and jingle their bells as they dance!
Dim always enjoys this, playing the fool and bopping everyone with his balloon on a stick. He makes sure to be very gentle with Nano!
Well, we have enjoyed our fete! But the fun isn’t over yet. We’ve got the a fair to go to later!
