St. Georges Day Celebrations

St George s Day is celebrated by the several nations, kingdoms, countries, and cities. And one town in particular played host to an eventful celebration.

Downham Market had a joyous activity filled day. Some of the features included, Morris Dancing, Face Painting, Merry-go-Round, Climbing Wall and of course Live Dragon Slaying . The highlight of the day was the act of St. George thwarting the dragons retreat by the somewhat unorthodox technique of Tail Pinning .
