Bradford Festival Koinobori lanterns.

The annual Bradford Festival was last weekend and I spent the weekend helping people to make Koinobori in the City Square. In spite of the slightly showery weather I was kept incredibly busy and nearly 400 Koinobori were sent out into the festival to wave at the musicians and performers. They looked so lovely fluttering in the breeze.   I didn’t really get a chance to take photographs as it was so busy but here are a couple I took before I was completely inundated! 🙂
