Hungerford Arcade was bathed in sunshine as the Hungerford Food Festival 2016 got underway. The weather was perfect, the food was mouth wateringly delicious and the crowds were raring to go. With every type of food you could think of all down the High Street and in the Town Hall, we were spoiled for choice. The aroma from the freshly prepared foods was more tempting than anybody could bear.
Immediately outside the Arcade, a huge flaming pizza oven was waiting to bake the first of many dozens of fresh pizzas the people were watching being made. I can tell you that they were absolutely delicious.
When the doors to the Arcade swung open at 11.00 am, waves of customers came in all happy and jolly. It was a fantastic atmosphere that was carried throughout the day.
Home and overseas customers excitedly snapped away with their cameras and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. In fact, everyone had a great time. I think there will be a lot of excess baggage going through the airports on their way home.
Delicious food, live music and singing topped off with a visit to the Arcade made it a wonderful family day out. Truly a day to remember.
Three cheers from Hungerford Arcade for everyone involved in making the Hungerford Food Festival 2016 a huge success.
