Kristina Willloughby, Boston Borough Council’s events manager, said: “The weather was kind all weekend, the crowds gathered and the community came together to enjoy an amazing day. Children were able to ride on the vintage fair and many enjoyed making the vintage art and crafts. We are so grateful to Boston Big Local for continuing to fund it and thank you to the local shops who got dressed up as well.”

Fran Taylor, event organiser, said: “The event is growing year on year and we are constantly looking for new ideas and additions. It is great to see so many people out enjoying themselves. We are looking forward to the 2020 event already”.
