An event or community gathering,
usually staged by a local community,
which centres on some theme,
sometimes on some unique aspect
of the community.

The Shelford Duck Race is held every year

on the last Sunday in February,

although Covid caused its cancellation in 2021.

If not a Festival by definition…

…the day certainly does not lack

a festive/carnival atmosphere…

…which peaks for the Duck Race

along the Leigh River.
