At the height of summer, this year's St. Peter's Fete on Saturday 1 July was a lovely and memorable afternoon with something for everyone.
There were three speed boats racing up and down the Tyne, exhiliarating everyone who made the trips from St. Peter's Marina.
St. Peter's Wharf played host on the day to some of the best arts and crafts stalls, as well quality street food from St. Peter's own Scream for Pizza, and Flip 'n' Fast creperie. Fifth Fusiliers visited too, showing Fete-goers their training virtual reality experience. The Maritime Volunteer Service (Northumbria) enjoyed meeting and talking with Fete-goers, as well as showing off their boat which is one of the boats moored in St. Peter's Marina.
Merchants Tavern ran a barbecue and provided live music sets throughout the afternoon.
The very young stole the show. The end-of-Fete kick-boxing demonstration by Universal Martial Arts junior team was highly-skilled, outstanding and entertaining. Whilst Trigger Trains running around St. Peter's Marina saw the railway back in St. Peter's, much to the delight of children and adults alike.
Big thanks go out to the many people and businesses in St. Peter's, and from across the City and the region, who helped to make this year's St. Peter's Fete another great event for all.
