Fete, is obviously a French word that meant feast originally. Then, as only the English do, it evolved to mean fair. These fairs started in the Middle Ages and were usually linked with Christianity, and some sort of saint. Whatever, here's a collection of images from fetes, fairs, and festivals, that can only be very English, apart from it's not raining !!
