The weather wasn’t the only thing that stayed dry on Satur­day at New­ton Gala Day.

Thirsty res­i­dents en­sured the beer tent at the an­nual event sold out long be­fore the fes­tiv­i­ties came to a close as the com­mu­nity ral­lied once more.

The an­nual event in New­ton Com­mu­nity Park has be­come one of the high­lights of the cal­en­dar and the 2016 edi­tion proved to be no dif­fer­ent.

As well as the beer tent, lo­cals en­joyed the var­i­ous rides, stalls, pony rides and mu­sic.

New­ton Vil­lage Res­i­dents As­so­ci­a­tion so­cial con­vener, Jeanette Adam said:“It was a re­ally great day and the weather stayed dry.

“Ev­ery time I looked the park was mobbed and more peo­ple just kept stream­ing in. There was a con­stant flow of peo­ple.”
