Giro d'Italia meets Hookery

The Giro d'Italia is coming to Northern Ireland this weekend  One of the 3 big cycling races each year along with the Tour de France and Vuelta a España.  Towns and villages of Northern Ireland are awash with a sea of pink streamers, bicycles, monuments lit up in (what has become locally known as) 'Giro pink' in the evening ....

And so the Hookits decided that they would have a go at going 'Giro pink' as well ...

Beginnings of 'squaring the circle'
Pink nails too
Strawberries and ice-cream
Pink lemonade
A riot of colour to end the night

Thanks to all who came dressed in pink and made the night a little bit different.
