The 2015 Bala Cranberry Festival in pictures

0

Thousands of visitors flocked to Bala this past weekend for the annual Bala Cranberry Festival.

The weekend saw a mix of warm and cold weather but thankfully for many, no rain beyond a brief downpour Friday.

Organizers say the event was a great success with the midway and tours of the cranberry marshes proving to be some of the great highlights once again.

Below is a gallery of some of our favorite shots from throughout the weekend:
