Thousands of people enjoyed a 60s summer party with retro crafts, cheesy music and sunshine at five parks in St Albans.

Larks in the Parks was held at St Albans’ Victoria Playing Field and Fleetville Community Centre, the London Colney Community Centre, Batford Springs in Harpenden, and Roestock Park in Colney Heath.

At different locations there were stalls, donkey rides, live music, face painting, welly wanging, ukulele playing, a tombola, rides, and food.

Portfolio holder for St Albans district council (SADC), Cllr Annie Brewster, said: “Larks in the Parks has been going for 15 years and always provides families and friends with a fun day out in local parks across the district.

“This year the event took on a 60s theme with everyone enjoying a great variety of entertainment, activities, and music.”
