Stowmarket Carnival weekend started with an amazing procession of more than 40 groups. All the lorries looked fantastic and everyone enjoyed themselves. Chilton Community Primary won Best in Show for decorating their lorry with a Cinderella theme. Cara-lee School of Dance won Best in Show as a walking group, dressed as Cruella De Vil and the 101 Dalmations.
The procession walked from PPG to the Recreation Ground with bumper crowds lining the streets. Everyone looked amazing and the carnival committee were impressed with how many people took part. The carnival court looked regal in their horse and carriage, decorated in fresh flowers by Edelweiss florist from Stowmarket.
The recreation ground was filled with stalls, a food court and a children’s corner. The arena drew in crowds to watch Blodorn Englar, Winters Academy Dance Group and Kuk Sol Won Martial Arts. Music was by Dale & The Incidentals followed by FIVESKA.
Sunday’s fun started with a car show followed by a dog show in the arena and local group The Skittlez entertained the crowds on the main stage.
The carnival committee would like to thank everyone who donated a prize, their time or money. Without you the town would not have a carnival. They have had so much support this year, it has been overwhelming.
