Steeped in tradition Market Harborough Carnival has brought joy to generations of children and parents alike and 2018 will see the community once again come together for a full day of entertainment and celebration.

With a restructured committee this year’s carnival is set to be the biggest and best yet with music, food, drink, and even a guest celebrity for your enjoyment making a fun packed day of entertainment for all the family.

Joining once again with Race Harborough the town will be filled with runners of all ages pitting themselves against a variety of Carnival courses designed to involve all the family.

This will be followed by a procession of Carnival Floats showcasing local charities, schools, and businesses culminating in a full day of sports, music, food and entertainment for all the family at the Symington Recreation Ground Carnival Arena.

See below for more on the programme for the day.
