We're almost ready for carnival on 7th July and here is our queen with the princess and attendants who are now preparing for their big day leading the procession and presiding over the occasion. Pictured are (back row from left) Katie Neal -attendant, Bethan Roberts -carnival princess, Emma Baldwin -attendant and in front, Melissa Sibley our carnival queen.
But before the big day, watch out for Clarabel the Cow's visit to the villages later in June. It's just £1 a shot to guess where Clarabel will make her special deposit and it might win you a big cash prize so make sure you don't miss Clarabel. And here are just some of the exciting things you can join in with on the day:
The Procession - get dressed up and come on a float or on foot.
Best Dressed House Competition - if you're home is on the procession route, give us a good display and you could win a beautiful trophy from our sponsor, Leighton Buzzard Observer.
Worm Charming - some amazing techniques and strong competition Silent Auction - place your bids for some top quality items.
Climbing Wall - new challenge this year scaling the heights.
Clarabel's Lucky Cash Prize - Don't miss Clarabel the Cow's performance in the arena. Guess where she will make her special deposit and you could win a substantial cash prize-the more guesses the bigger the prize!
The Grand Draw - Some of the best prizes for miles around.
Of course we'll also have vintage vehicles, belly dancing, chainsaw carving, traditional home baking, tombola, and many other sideshows, stalls and entertainments so make sure you're there for a fun filled day.
