No rain­ing on this pa­rade

Guardian Express - - NEWS -

A LIGHT sprin­kling of rain did not de­ter crowds from last Sun­day’s An­gove Street Fes­ti­val, with num­bers reach­ing up to 60,000 by the af­ter­noon.

North Perth Lo­cal chair­woman Ida Smith­wick said the day was a suc­cess.

“There were no dramas; every­thing went off with­out a hitch,” Mrs Smith­wick said.

“It was a very good day and lots of peo­ple said they would come back next year.

“Ev­ery­one needs a rest and then we’ll start think­ing abut next year’s fes­ti­val; prob­a­bly around Jan­uary or Fe­bru­ary.”

As many as 60,000 peo­ple turned out for the fes­ti­val.

Stilt-walk­ers en­ter­tained crowds.
