Your photos: Dundas Cactus Festival 2013
38th annual edition of the event ran from Friday to Sunday
Dry, bright and warm, the weather in Hamilton this weekend was great for cactuses and summer festivals alike.
Appropriately, thousands of fun-seekers soaked up the sun at the 38th annual Cactus Festival in downtown Dundas.
Running from Friday to Sunday, the festival featured spine-tingling midway rides, musical acts, games for children and, of course, lots of succulent food.
(There were a few prickly plant sightings, too.)
Dozens of visitors posted their festival photos and videos to social media. Here's a look at the scenes they captured on camera.
