Partying streets ahead in St Albans
A MASSIVE street party is in full swing in the heart of St Albans as hundreds of visitors enjoy entertainment, stalls and more in celebration of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
Rain held off for the start of today’s, Monday June 4, fun day, much to the relief of those dining al fresco in St Peter’s Street, which has been closed to traffic for the event.
Among the hundreds of party-goers are the Finley and Finley-Kensett families, who bought a curry from stalls selling food along the street for lunch.
Maria Stagg, of St Albans, dressed Tommy, her friendly Whippet, in Union Jack attire for the special occasion.
She said: “I like to support local endeavours.”
