Visitors to Sunday's Anglican Church fête were greeted with bright sunshine and baking temperatures, helping the outdoor fundraising event get off with a bang.
Compared with Saturday's downpours, the weather could not have been more different with clear blue skies attracting more than 800 visitors to the Ancien Prieuré in Useldange.
There, a packed line-up awaited visitors, from entertainment, a dog show, competitions, shopping and games for all the family.
The fair opened with a special ceremony, thanking Useldange's mayor, Pollo Bodem and Chris and Anna Vaudrey, who have allowed the event to be hosted on their property for the last 25 years.
The traditional duck race on a stream at the end of the property saw a slower than usual current but provided overheated children with a chance to cool off in the water while helping to retrieve run-away ducks. Back in the garden, bargain hunters were in their element with the English book stand, bric-a-brac and plant stall. Foodies were spoiled for choice with a barbecue, cake and curry stands meanwhile there were endless games and competitions for youngsters, including this year's newest stand- the snail races, as well as the ever popular magician, Christian Lavery.
Event organiser Simon Norcross told wort.lu/en: “This is the 25th anniversary of the Vaudrey's holding the Church Fair and I think it's been a great day and fitting for the occasion.”
The fair raises on average more than 10,000 euros per year. This year, proceeds will be divided among a number of charitable causes, including Christian Aid's project for mothers and children in Sierra Leone, London homeless project Connections St Martins and a World Vision project helping mothers at risk of abandoning their children in Romania.
