I am now back from jaunting around the French Riviera, I have a ton of posts and a few videos to post, just to cling to the sun and sense of freedom a tad longer - but before we get into sun, sea and sand I wanted to show you the Lambeth Country Fair.
The Lambeth Country Fair is one of my favourite events that South London has to offer. I mean, it's hard not to get excited by a day that is based around cider, tasty food and reggae music. The day actually got off to a sunny start, that was until the England decided to be the ultimate cliche and rain / thunderstorm / apocalypse... but you will see that for yourself later. So, it started sunny and I went with it - watermelon skirt, sandals and wearing ALL of the colours.
The fair itself is just lovely, even the trees decided to dress up for the occasion. Fuelling up on tasty food before the cider consumption and dancing begins is always the number one priority. I had discovered 'Anna Mae's Mac 'n' Cheese' at the fair last year and I had been craving the cheesy goodness ever since. I went for the 'Kanye Western' because cheese, bacon and hotdogs is a pretty mouthwatering, heart stopping combination.

We wandered around, taking in the atmosphere before settling on a stage to dance, drink and be merry. That lasted around an hour before the skies began to cry, we then spent a good hour stood under a tree (wet) with umbrellas hoping that the sun would show itself again. The fair was over but our spirits were still high, we danced through the mud all the way to a reggae bar. Everyone was full of mud and wet but that actually added to a pretty great atmosphere.
All round great day.
