But, a month's worth of fabulous activities and events could not be spoiled by a drop of rain.
Hitchin Stitchin's yarnbomb installation was given a final fanfare in The Comet as it was taken down and packed away ready for the next event at Moggerhanger Hospice on 7th August,
The installation will then take pride of place at Festiwool on 14th November,
Bucklesbury staged its own celebration on the final Saturday.
The British Schools' Museum hosted many Festival events, and opened the new Ladybird Books' Exhibition last week.
For a whole month, we enjoyed a Food and Wine festival, a French market theatre, music, art, and much more.
We even had the opening of our own Gelateria.
What a wonderful town in which to work and live.
