Northampton Town Festival hailed a major success after 44k attended
The organisers of this year's Northampton Town Festival have hailed the event a major success after 44,000 people attended.
The stunning weather over the July 6 and 7 weekend also saw all of the scheduled balloon flights go ahead - providing a spectacular sight for people throughout the county.
In total, there were 105 flights over two days, involving 30 balloon crews who provided a popular attraction for many of the visitors.
Just as popular was the live entertainment that began on Friday evening, and continued throughout Saturday and Sunday, with crowds enjoying stunt performers, including the Vander Superhero Space Wheel Show, Devil's Horsemen, Stannage Stunts and Jamie Squibb.
Visitors to the Racecourse also enjoyed a busy programme of live music, with the RePro Jam Squad headlining on Saturday and The Two Tones entertaining the crowds on Sunday.
"Once again, we've been blown away by the support of local people for our event, which is now in its fourth year," said Peter Jones, a spokesman for the organisers. "It was a fantastic weekend, the feedback has been amazing, and we can't wait for next year."
