Guest Blog: August Bank Holiday Weekend

It was a scorching beautiful August bank holiday this weekend and to top it all off Fargo Village and their guest gave us entertainment for all the family this weekend.

Spanning across 3 days, with their Big Summer BBQ, Beer Festival and Face of Summer festival, FarGo was the place to be with its fabulous array of food, indoor market, charity stalls, animal encounters and of course, the locals!

During the weekend at the Big Summer BBQ, there was a mega hot wings challenge – completely free if you could survive the heat, although I am not sure how many managed it! Locals Saus ‘n’ Roll got involved with their marinated leg of lamb and Spangles offered a free drink with every burger as well as some wonderful guest caterers as always.

Twisted Barrel Ale stayed open all throughout to serve chilled drinks as part of their beer festival while the Big Comfy Bookshop provided some respite for those who fancied a bit of peace and quiet while the kids played outside!

There were fun craft activities for children with the societies in the craft hall, the Rock ‘n’ Roller parlour made sure we were festival ready with their glitter roots and hair wraps along with Sarah Jane Creations who did face-painting for the kids (and adults alike!)

Iris May Falcons showed off their majestic birds (the owls were so cute!), you could hold a ferret from Ferret Rescue and feed them peanut butter and even have an encounter with an Alpaca or three. It was so great to see animals at FarGo, and I can’t wait for more things like this in the future!

There truly was something to entertain everyone this weekend and the village was a hive of activity. FarGo Village has outdone itself for providing us with such a fantastic place to fill both our minds and our faces this weekend!
