This years event attracted over 25,000 people through out the day with marching brass bands still performing early in the morning progressing to the race course by the river.
As we are a regular trader at Durham outdoor market we where asked to provide a double stand for this event to handle the large amount of people passing through the City.
Our food station was very popular all day and we sold out of everything just before 5pm.
