ParkgateFest was created by local residents and traders last year to showcase all that the area has to offer. This year the festival began on a soggy Saturday morning but the clouds lifted and everyone had a great weekend. There was something for all ages.
Spokesperson Sue Saunders said: ‘Everyone who works on the festival has to be passionate about it as it’s such hard work but the teamwork has been really incredible.
‘I’m thrilled that Sunday was such a lovely day. We had a mix of local bands and tribute bands,’ said Sue.
