    I went to the Poole Thai festival on 8th September. There were stalls selling Thai craft.

    Of course in true British tradition it was interupted with rain with everyone dashing for cover.

    After the shower, the festival continued with singing with some of the crowd dancing and enjoying the show.

    Bravo for an "image heavy" post, Darren -- Mu-43 is way to hardware talk heavy for me sometimes.

    Fun shots of a cultural festival -- I enjoyed them.
