Ribble Valley Mod Weekender.

Clitheroe was overtaken by Vespas and lambrettas over the weekend. It was the Ribble Valley Mod weekender and over 500 scooters honked their horns as they paraded through town on Saturday. Other events included various mod influenced bands playing in some of the local cafes and pubs and a mod market set up in the Rose & crown car park. I personally don’t really know my Mods from my Rockers, though I do feel a little better educated now! I took my camera uptown and got quite a few shots so this blog post was born. Scooter porn. 🙂 Scuse my ignorance on the subject but aren’t they fantastic.

I did manage to see one of the bands later on in Keystreet. Northern Sugar, who were pretty good. 🙂

By complete coincidence I had made these cute Pink Vespa expresso cup candles a few weeks earlier. This weekend turned out to be the perfect time to sell them….and they were snapped up from my friends shop Chillimoon.Happy days.:))

Hope you’ve had a fab weekend. I’m spending the rest of it chillin.:)
