People in Alcester in Warwickshire aren't letting the rain dampen their sprits!

Organisers of the street party are hoping it will be the biggest one in the country with more than 7,000 people expected and they're hoping the rain won't put people off.

Last year's royal street party was fantastic, attracting thousands of revellers. It also attracted worldwide media coverage, with many reporting it as probably the biggest street party in the country.
