Deal carnival - all you need to know

By Eleanor Perkins

Deal Regatta Week will culminate with everyone's favourite event, the carnival, tonight.

The procession will take place along The Strand from 7pm.

It will be led by Deal Regatta Queen Kelsi Endean, 15, and her court.

New floats joining old favourites like the Newfoundland dogs are the Mini Red Arrows, Wednesday Willow's Cowboys and Dover College Lenny the Letter.

There will also be dance troupes and musicians.

Chairman John Trickey has asked spectators not to throw coins or liquids.

He said: "Please put your coins or notes in the buckets.

There will be one face missing in this year's event after the death of Popeye.

Ron Everett, who gained a reputation as the cartoon impersonator not only in Deal but around the county and beyond, died following a battle with cancer on July 18.

The 86-year-old travelled from Hastings to take part in the event every year and told KentOnline's sister paper the Mercury in 2015 that he would keep doing so until he reached three figures and beyond!
