All the fun of the car­ni­val

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

HUN­DREDS of rev­ellers en­joyed a day in the sum­mer sun at the Oun­dle Car­ni­val last week­end.

The an­nual event took place on Satur­day and saw a whole day of lo­cal cel­e­bra­tion and events, with the high­light be­ing a colour­ful pa­rade through the vil­lage.

Par­tic­i­pants in the pa­rade were led by Car­ni­val Queen Vic­to­ria Sethna walked the length of Mil­ton Road, which was closed to cars for the day.

Along the way there were a range of stalls sell­ing lo­cal pro­duce and fun games such as welly wan­gling and throw­ing balls through hoops.

Or­gan­iser Les­leyTay­lor said: “There was a very eclec­tic range of events and there re­ally was some­thing for ev­ery­one.

“We got very lucky with the weather as it was a lovely day.”

Fol­low­ing the Pa­rade there was a full af­ter­noon range of ac­tiv­i­ties and events to be held at the Oun­dle Rugby Club.

An Events Arena was con­structed for a two hour pro­gramme in­clud­ing a tug of war, ma­jorettes and street per­form­ers.

There were also foot­ball and rugby games be­tween Oun­dle and vis­i­tors who came es­pe­cially from its French twin sis­ter town An­drésy.

An evening of mu­sic, danc­ing and fire­works rounded off the fes­tiv­i­ties.

The rugby club’s play­ing fields were trans­formed into a con­cert area for the event, which saw a mix of pro­fes­sional and keen am­a­teur mu­si­cians take to the stage.
