As ds will be 5 and it will be summer, i wd like to not worry about guest lists etc and just invite the class (30). Obv not everyone will come, but i know that's a lot of people. We have a cple of tables i can cover with paper cloths, and I want to do a village fete - so, what stalls wd be good. Plan is, they arrive, wander round the fete and then have some sort of 'event' in the arena. Decoration and stall ideas please? Am doing a bran tub full of summer things (sunglasses, plant pots) to go home with at end. Thanks.

You could do it as a colouring competition and pin the entries to a board/fence as they do them and have a grand judging ceremony.
For the event arena, you could use it for the party games, make a big sign with times for each of the games(or just the order of the games if youve got any fussy ones ) and announce them just before they're going to start - musical bumps, musical statues, dancing competition, pass the parcel. Also means it doesn't matter if they don't want to join in.
