Drive underway to increase number of floats in Leysdown Carnival 2017

By Chloe Holmwood

A drive is underway to increase the number of floats taking part in this year’s Leysdown Carnival.

Leysdown Events Organisation (LEO) is hoping the procession, on Saturday, July 29, will be bigger and better than before and is asking people in the area to take part and support the parade.

Groups can enter a float or simply take part on foot.

It will start moving at 2pm and road closures will be in force until 4pm along Leysdown Road – from the junction with Warden Bay Road – The Promenade and Grove Avenue.

Entry in the procession is free.

An afternoon of fun is in store in Leysdown, with music and stalls – which will be welcome from 10am and cost £10.

Mary Culver, LEO secretary, said: “It would be fantastic if we had more floats than last year’s 12 in the procession.”

To book a stall, to take part in the parade or for more information, email maryculver@sky.com or call Mary on 07801 578883.
