Rickmansworth Festival

Hello there! Hope you all had a lovely and relaxing weekend.

We went to the Rickmansworth Festival for the very first time last weekend. It normally takes place on the third weekend of May every year at the Aquadrome Local Nature Reserve, which is about 5 minutes walk from our house.  We made an extra effort to go this time since we missed it for the last couple of years we have been here. 

The usually tranquil Aquadrome was turned into a vibrant and buzzing funfair, filled with food and trade stalls, live music plus many more fun activities to keep visitors of all ages entertained.  The festival has been going for over 15 years to celebrate canals, the local community and the environment. 

I was most interested in the farm section where children were allowed to cuddle some of the cutest animals including the gorgeous piglet in the above picture! This piglet was only 3 weeks old and it was the sweetest thing ever. I know some of you might be tempted to get one but this lil piglet would not be suitable as a house pet since he can grow up to 130 kg!
