Organisers of Harrogate's Bilton Gala have confirmed the event will take place in the summer.

The popular family event in Harrogate was supposed to take place on Monday 7th May. 

However, the traditional bank holiday Bilton Gala was postponed due to wet weather earlier in the Spring.

A rescheduled date has been set for Sunday 22nd July.

Organisers say the postponement was made after an inspection of the fields at Richard Taylor Primary School following recent wet weather.

Local residents have been welcoming the news.

However, some people did question over the weekend, why the gala couldn't go ahead. 

The Bilton Gala committee posted on Facebook to assure people the decision was a difficult one but the right thing to do:
