Missing our Carnival…pictures

I love the Preston Carnival event and can’t believe it’s been cancelled this year due to funding issues. For many years, this was the traditional Carnival weekend in Preston and below I’ve chosen a few photos from previous years to remind us all of what we are missing.

It’s a great cultural event that is usually enjoyed by thousands and it’s a shame that money can be found for other events but not for this one.  Let’s hope it returns bigger and better next year.

What we do have this year is a scaled down ‘static’ event on the Flag Market which takes place on 11th June. No way can that ever be considered an adequate replacement for the procession of colour and music that normally winds its way through the City, entertaining crowds of onlookers along the way.

And, here is what we are missing.  A few photos from previous years that hopefully capture something of this spectacular event.
