Hawaian Island
By Geoff Hodgkinson, Co-Editor

August 18, 2008: Hundreds of ducks were in heaven Saturday when the Carnival Committee held their fourth annual duck race at Island Park. The wet weather kept people numbers down but the event was excellently organised, and had more cover than usual to cope with the rain that has become traditional at this event. Actually, after a damp afternoon, the rain mostly stayed away. Like 'Glastonbury' the mud was one of the stars, and the entertainment was top class. Rob and Dave played two excellent sets. Following thousands of complaints (from Dave) that they weren't pictured in our Festival coverage last month, we'll be highlighting them in our picture report - coming soon. Meanwhile here's a picture of what hundreds of ducks look like when they are escaping.
