Carnival Introduction

Returning for another year is the wonderful display of entertainment, music, fancy dress and dance from local groups, organizations and businesses in our Carnival. A staple part of the Big Weekend, the Carnival is an ideal opportunity to inject some fun, music and cheer to the summer activities in the town and marks the opening of the famous summer fayre.
