Carnival 2010

Posted on July 14, 2010


Saturday 10th July was the date of 2010’s Ambergate Carnival.

I was not on the committee this year having been involved in fundraising and events for Carnivals 2008 and 2009.

Luckily this meant I had chance to enjoy the Circus themed day and take a few photos.

The parade included juggling clowns,

the colourful marching band, the Long Eaton Militaires,

and a vintage car stuffed with kids and a ‘strong man’.

A great effort was made this year from all the kids in fancy dress

and the adults too!

” ‘ello, ‘ello, ‘ello. What have we ‘ere then? “

The usual suspects

The fancy dress competition was hotly contested.

This is one of the winners.

Here are a few other snaps from what was a fantastic day…

Congratulations to the Carnival Committee for 2010.

I think we scrub up well for a little Derbyshire village.
