An Afternoon On The Riverside

Yesterday I was down at Nottingham’s Riverside Festival on the banks of the River Trent photographing all afternoon. There was a lot of great live music and a (mostly) friendly atmosphere, with a fair sized turnout even with the rain. Their were groups of people sat along the riverbank having picnics and couples sat in each others arms just enjoying the evening. The whole day was wrapped up nicely with the now customary firework display.

All the stall vendors wore this uniform to fit in with the riverside theme.

The festival was a great day out for the whole family, and that included many dogs.

Besides from the rides and music stages, many people enjoyed the day sat together beside the river.

Stilt-walkers dressed as a pirate boat.

Dotted along the length of the festival were a several street performers.

All day boats took people on rides up and down the River Trent.

Despite the rain spirits remained high.

It was shots like this why I carried my tripod around with me all day.

A couple dancing to the swing band playing on the bandstand behind them.

The day was finished off with an impressive firework display launched from the opposite riverbank.
