Settle Flowerpot Festival 2018

Hello!

Every year, business owners and those who live in Settle are encouraged to design, build and display all sorts of different flowerpots and every year people are invited to wonder around and spot as many as they can. Three trails are created to give you the best possible chance at seeing them all but the organisers never know exactly how many there will be or even where they will be until hey start appearing. This year sees the 5th annual event after previous successes. The only aim is to brighten up the community, making people smile. Settle is a small market town and popular destination for walkers, caravanning and camping because of it's beautiful surroundings and easy access to more local historic towns, so as you can imagine, it's a perfect place for the flowerpot festival. This year, Edmond and I had a lovely evening walk before sunset to try and find as many as we could on own.

Here are some photos I got, though you can guarantee these aren't all of them!

My favourites have got to be the cow in the first picture, the giraffes, and the flowerpot man hanging from the wall. Honorary mentions go to the alpaca, the owl, the welsh dragon, and the pirate. Can't deny that the Poldark one made me smile and laugh a little because, even though I don't watch it, Aidan Turner. There are actually too many to mention as the best ones as they are all so creative and definitely do the job of brightening up your day. Huge well done and thank you to everyone in Settle who took time out of their days to make all of these! Would be lovely to go back next year and see what else people will make. Would also love it if something like this happened in my own town so I could get involved!

If you'd like to see them all for yourself, it is on until September 3rd! (Started 1st July until 3rd September this year so it will be around a similar time, if not the same, next year if you fancy planning ahead!)

Until the next festival,
