“yes people! our Night Parades are back to blow your mind…just when you thought things couldn’t get any weirder at Bestival, night falls and a glowing procession of ghostly ghouls and freaky apparitions float through the site to twist your brain that little bit more…” Rob da Bank / A to Z of Bestival
Despite the rain, Sandown Carnival went ahead and there was a good turn out.
Camp Bestival was wet and windy this year! More than half our team lost their tents and had to go home early. Due to the weather, the night parades were cancelled and we did one parade on Saturday morning. Tiger dancer costumes went out for the first time.
Shademakers attended the Rhythm Tree Festival in Calbourne, IOW for the first time.
Shademakers really enjoyed taking part in the first ever IW Pride event. Photos from Adam Tucker Photography. https://www.facebook.com/ShademakersUK/videos/1203940723085390/
