Leighton-Linslade Carnival

Saturday 13th July 2024 11:00 - 16:00

Doors open: 11:00 am

The next Leighton-Linslade Carnival is scheduled to take place on Saturday 13th July 2024.

Leighton-Linslade Carnival is a local event that has continued to give local residents a fun day out and an opportunity to participate in an event that nurtures community involvement.

Carnival day starts early with Parsons Close Recreation Ground set up with a live entertainment arena, stalls, funfair rides, food and so much more – all ready and waiting for the procession to arrive later in the day.

Meanwhile, the carnival floats are decorated and the procession assemble early ready to start their journey along the designated procession route. Lots of people stop and wave the procession along and it’s always a pleasure to see so many smiling faces, young and old, as they appreciate the effort made by everyone taking part.

A collection is made along the procession route, which is always generously supported and the donations are part of the funds distributed to charities and community groups at the Awards Evening.

The procession ends at Parsons Close Recreation Ground, where the winners are announced and presentations are made in the live entertainment arena.

The 2024 theme chosen from suggestions from the public is Fairy Tales
