Sunshine, crowds, a Spitfire flypast and loads of entertainment and stalls meant Manea Gala was back in style on Saturday for the first time in three years.
Thousands of people turned out first to watch the annual parade, which included floats from the village school and the youth football club among others, as well as a huge array of vintage and veteran tractors and even Delboy and Rodney Trotter made an appearance in their three-wheeled car with Grandad in the back.
It was then down to the playing field for an afternoon packed with displays in the main ring, side shows, stalls and refreshments.
One of the highlights was a flypast by a Spitfire which buzzed over the showground to applause, from what could possibly have been record breaking crowds, thanks to the glorious weather.
The Jez Avery Stunt Team wowed the crowds as did members of the Wisbech and District Kart Racing Team.
There was a hugely successful dog show, which attracted canines of all shapes and sizes.
Uncle Brian kept the younger children entertained with a traditional Punch and Judy show and also allowed people of all ages to try their hand at tightrope walking.
Stalls ranged from charities running tombolas and lucky dips to local craftspeople selling their wares which included wood working and flowers.
Other attractions included a display by the Manea Archive, bouncy castles, archery, birds of prey and live music which during the afternoon included performances by the Upwood Ukuleles. The music continued into the evening with performances from Chatteris and Manea Silver Band, Louise Kenny and Catch 22.
Organisers were blown away by the event's success after being cancelled for the past two years because of Covid and received huge praise on the event's Facebook page from those who attended for the effort that had gone into making the gala such great fun.
