Another very successful Carnival
The 2018 Aldeburgh Carnival was widely regarded as most enjoyable and very successful. We were concerned that the special nature of last year’s 75th event might discourage enthusiasm for this year’s spectacular but, in the event, there were many notable achievements including a record turn out of floats in the procession, an exceptional surge of entries in the decorated and illuminated premises competitions, almost a sell-out of draw tickets and an even larger than usual Chinese lantern procession.
Throughout the three days of festivities, the weather was kind and we have received through various media channels the thanks of many who enjoyed themselves. Fun and entertainment is not only what we do, and this year through public generosity, Aldeburgh Carnival has been able, once again, to distribute nearly £5,000 in grants to local good causes from helping the Parish Nurse to contributing to the Christmas Lights.
Arrangements are already underway for next year’s 77th carnival. We shall keep you up to date with progress as we move towards 17th-19th August 2019. Very many thanks to all the volunteers, helpers, contributors and those who came to enjoy themselves. Keep in touch!
