The original Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (GEN11)
The annual three day Extravaganza in the
spring is closely associated with a display of many types of veteran
and vintage vehicles in a Festival
of Transport held simultaneously at the show ground site at Bodafon
Farm Park near the Little Orme. Year 2003 celebrated the 75th
anniversary of the introduction of Llandudno UDC
operated bus services. There is a daily parade of participating
vehicles (including many steam tractors and wagons), brass bands, and
carnival troops. The parade travels through the town streets and via
the promenade to the show ground. These
photographs were taken in May 2003 - something for everybody.
