As part of the official Opening Ceremony for the Wales Rally GB on Conwy Quay, the town was full of entertainers dressed in medieval costumes. With the High Street being closed to traffic in the evening, the opportunity was taken to hold a Torchlight Parade. It weas very atmospheric and a great success, once again, well done to everyone involved.

Wales Rally GB in Llandudno

It was great to see Llandudno and Conwy both so busy for the Rally yesterday. We seem to be getting more prestigious events like this coming to the area lately and the Rally has provided a real boost to the towns in what is usually a very quiet time of year. Judging by the array of foreign accents heard, it must have brought a fair bit of money into the area. Well done to everyone involved in organising this event - it was well planned and meant a minimum of disruption to local people.
