Looking out of the window on Saturday most people thought Stevenage Day was going to be a washout.
But on Sunday the rain stayed away as thousands of people turned out to King George V Playing Fields for the annual showcase demonstrating what the town has to offer.
Councillor Richard Henry, who is responsible for children, young people and leisure at event organiser Stevenage Borough Council, said: “Once again this was a very successful Stevenage Day. I’m so pleased to see so many people coming to the event with their families and enjoying all the entertainment and activities that were on offer.
“As always, I would like to say a big thank you to the staff, community groups and individuals who worked incredibly hard to make the day a success, and I hope to see an even bigger event next year.”
There was live music from Cara Beard and Roxy Searle, plus African fire dancers and Brazilian drummers who kept the crowds entertained.
