Africa Oye is an African festival in Liverpool, at Sefton Park. I found out about it from a friend and decided to go. Yesterday morning was cold and it rained, so I prepared myself with wellies, waterproof jacket and we headed to Sefton. The sun came up and I had to ditch the jacket and the wellies kept me too warm. The festival is free and it is very entertaining; it’s still on today.
There are a lot of stalls with African clothes and didgeridoos and a lot of other interesting things. There are also stalls with food and drinks.
I loved these chickens! I wanted to buy 5 for the garden, but it’s not the best time at the moment. We are in the process of renovating (painting sounds too easy, so I use renovating instead) the conservatory and I’m thinking of getting screening for back fence and we have to sort out the bird feeder. Yes, still a lot of things to do before I can decide on the decorations or even if I want decorations.
Hubby said the dog will not appreciate a few chickens staring at him from the garden. Also, I am not sure I want the same decorations all the year, so we have to make the attic ready for the extra decorations. As you can see, the chickens were quite an important subject in our house last night.
The African clothes looked wonderful, colourful and cute.
There were a few singers and it was nice to hear African music.
I had a go at playing the drums, it was so engaging and fun. Hubby joined in too.
This is a piece of meteorite that is older than Earth. It was discovered in Argentina and it has a high content of iron. It was quite heavy for its size.
I couldn’t resist at a real Mr. Whippy ice cream truck.
The baskets looked so pretty.
My favourite stall (besides the one with the chickens) was the coconut water. The coconut was slightly overpriced, but it was a festival and it was so nice to drink out of a coconut, freshly cut; so it was worth it.
