Barrow AFC Gala Day 2014
Last updated at 13:07, Monday, 23 June 2014
THOUSANDS flocked to the Barrow AFC Gala Day to see local dance troupes perform and enjoy the scorching Sunday weather.
As well as the dance competition there were traders, a bouncy castle and a selection of food stalls.
Performers arrived from 10am and started with the youngest of the troupes and worked up to the more senior as the day progressed.
Organiser Darren Herbert said they had been blessed by the weather and it had been a brilliant turn out at the event at The Furness Building Society Stadium yesterday.
The event has become a regular fixture on the club’s social calendar and always attracts a big crowd of all ages but next year’s event could be in jeopardy.
Mr Herbert said the club’s new owners would be ripping up the pitch next summer to level it out so they may not have a home.
He added: “A big thank-you to all the volunteer stewards because without them this event couldn’t go ahead.
“Another big thanks to all the dance schools and everyone who comes along to support the day.”
