The festival was created to fill a quiet time in July and does what it says on the tin, with Morris dancing, Morris cars and street food awards descending on the town. Saturday saw the Mardens Devon Cottages Street Food Awards on the seafront, with local vendors plying their wares to a hungry audience. Ilfracombe mayor Val Gates and mayoress Amanda Gartshore attended and presented the peoples choice winner Freshly Sauced with their trophy. There was also Morris dancing on the seafront plus on Sunday, the Morris and Friends classic car tour rolled into town, plus there was music and dancing in Fore Street. Marnie Quy, chairman of Events 4 Ilfracombe, said: Despite boiling hot weather and the football our annual All Things Morris event went ahead as planned. We welcomed Morris sides from near and far including Ilfracombes very own Red Petticoats and North Devons ever popular Borderline. Newcomers Clerical Error from North Wales with their dragon mascot were a particular hit with the crowds. Events 4 Ilfracombe would like to thank our sponsors Marsdens Devon Cottages plus Shoreline Glass who hand-made some fabulous trophies and the numerous volunteers without whom Ilfracombes events wouldnt happen. Also to the businesses who gave their services for free in order to make the event happen. We are already planning 2019 and if the interest we have had is anything to go by we should have a huge Morris turnout next year and this event will grow again. Gloria OConnell from Marsdens Devon Cottages said: We are please once again to sponsor this popular event and hope to continue our partnership into the future.
