Pink Picnic 2005
Pink Picnic is an event held in Cambridge in the beautiful surroundings of Cherry Hinton Hall. As you can guess from the title, it's a gay event, but all are welcome. There are stalls, food, and entertainment. It was a great day out!

The night before... Sonia and her huge dog Pepsi. This is the only dog I've met that didn't like me, she growled, snapped and even nipped me!

Ready to go to Pink... Me, Fiona, Esther and Jo, with Celia and Sheryl behind.

View from the cripple pen at Pink... DOGGIES!

Poor thing, fancy having to wear pink deeleyboppers.

There was a chocolate fountain... I had mini doughnuts in it. YUM.

A naked protester - I think this guy is called Richard.

The Police had a word, and he whipped out a small rug thing to tie round his waist...

...and was off on his way. I didn't see him around after that.

Esther, the cutest pink cowgirl!

A marching band paraded through the picnic.

On the stage was a model competition, hosted by one of the ugliest drag queens I've ever seen.

View fullsize
Now that's much more stylish!

View fullsize
The motley crew competing to be a model. None of them looked great!

Happy Jo.

The cripple pen was held together by small cable ties...

View fullsize
Lots of Esther and a little bit of Jo.

Jo and Fiona, with Jo's sis Isabel in the middle. She's not gay. But she IS holding a pink cowgirl hat.

Christian makes a candyfloss beard. That was very good candyfloss. Well, obviously not that bit!

View fullsize
Is that... another doggie? I like doggies!

View fullsize
I really DON'T like these deeleyboppers... but they look like pink fireworks.

View fullsize
What happened to the doggies? These are rats on strings!

View fullsize
Who feels stupidest, the doggie with deeleyboppers or the little rats?

View fullsize
Pink is great for families too.

View fullsize
There were a lot of policemen... not really needed in that quantity.

View fullsize
Some of the stalls.

Someone wearing pink! Most people didn't, so those who did stood out.

View fullsize
The dance tent. I liked it in there.

View fullsize
The glass "yard" was cool. The fact he was topping it up from a can of Grolsch was not cool at all.

View fullsize
I was amazed to see a plant stall!

View fullsize
Helen and Fiona. Awww.

View fullsize
Jo looks even happier! Look at the expression of the man behind (in full size). Oh, and Jo dances... click here!

View fullsize
Esther still looks cute. Check the expression of the lass behind her.

View fullsize
Sheryl, Christian and Jo take a break.

View fullsize
The cabaret tent (I didn't go in, but predictably it was run by drag queens).

A chap performing on Stage Two.

View fullsize
Doggie!

View fullsize
Hurricane Isabel - that's Jo's sis on the right.

I also took four video clips of them... click here, here, here and here. The last one shows the local talent dancing...(!)

This three month old lab was being puppy walked, and when I asked to take a photo they offered to take one of me. He's enjoying having his ears rubbed.

View fullsize
What fantastic balloons!

A last glance at the main stage as we leave the site.

On the way out, Fiona helped herself to the entry sign... nice one! We broke many of the rules, or saw them being broken, I think.

What a fab day out! Thanks very much to Jo for inviting me, and putting us up!
