Preston caribbean Carnival 2016

Flag Market Pop up Mini Carnival

Family event, no alcohol!

The colours, sounds and community spirit long associated with Preston`s Caribbean Carnival will be taking over the Flag Market in the city centre for a mini pop-up carnival 11 June.

This year`s annual static event of the King and Queen Competition where the troupes battle it out to be crowned the Carnival King and Queen 2016, has an added twist. It will include the troupes, Ablaze Youth Group, Isles in Harmony and Spectrum Association performing their fantastic dance routines and showing off their colourful costumes. Young people have been practicing their dance routines for weeks and promises to give you a real taste of the Caribbean. This family friendly afternoon will also feature a children's funfair, food stalls, face painting, a treasure hunt and more! Previous costumes have featured a giant cobra, fish, skulls and lions, providing a wow factor to the day not to be missed.

Elaine Webb chair of the Preston Caribbean Carnival Committee said, "The King and Queen Competition has always been a great event and this year offers a small-scale opportunity for us to celebrate all of the hard work that goes into costumes and dance routines without the expense of a full carnival."
