Entertainment throughout the day was provided by Shoestring Theatre Company, Zumba Lou Lou, Ishin Ryu Ju Jitsu and Brandon School of Dance.

As 1pm approached hundreds lined the town's streets to watch as the carnival parade made it's way along London Road.

Participants in the parade included Glade Primary School, The Harvest Centre, Ishin Ryu Ju Jitsu, Go Ape, Brandon Riding Academy and many more.
