Victorian Oamaru

Yesterday (Saturday) was the parade and no Santa in sight. although the Queen and the wizard made an appearance with the mayor. Penny Farthings were plentiful.
Cute kids in bonnets riding carriages,
Not sure why he's carrying a spare wheel.
The singing and whistling policeman put in an appearance, an arresting sight.

Followed by the temperence and votes for women supporters.
There were loads of old cars.

Today was the Fete with good weather, and a big crowd. I didn't get time to take any photos as I was busy in Tote weaving on the floor loom and answering lots of questions. I'm quite tired tonight. My daughter spent her day slaving in a nearby coffee shop.
