I don't know for sure, but I rather imagine a village 'fete' to be a British custom. Of course, this is where you all prove me wrong and highlight events all through your land, fine, but you'll need photographic eveidence!
The scene is the pretty little Sussex village of Jevington, and the annual summer fete raises money for the local church. It's a pleasant enough way to while away a couple of hours. Join me on the tour..
The hog roast - no nothing to do with HD - always popular!
Villagers set up stalls selling anything and everything.
The lad in the check shirt is my son - was it the two beers that gave it away? He stayed up all night baking well over 100 loaves of bread for his stall. Not afraid of a bit of work that one.
The band were good. No, really, they were!
Especially with a glass or two behind you.
The kids all love Punch & Judy, do you have them in the 'states? You should!
The owner of the field must have kids (or grandkids) what a neat little playhouse hidden under a tree.
A pretty little place, Jevington. Not all Brits are lucky enough to live in a country cottage - despite how we're portrayed on TV!
