Come and have fun at Lymington's summer carnival and

carnival fete on Sunday 17th July!

Lymington Carnival 2016 on 17 July

 

Lymington Carnival and Fête will be taking place on Sunday 17th July. Since its relaunch two years ago, it has regained its status as a leading event in the county. Organised by The Lymington Lions, it attracts a wide variety of entrants, each striving in various categories for best winning float.

 

The event has been largely bought back to life after a revamp by Mish Frampton. Mish was watching the event three years ago and decided that she really wanted to help bring the carnival back to former glories. She has worked tirelessly since then to establish a great committee set up, sound sponsorship packages and attractions and themes that make it appealing to children and adults alike.

 

Carnival Procession - 11.00am around Lymington

Carnival procession route 2016Before the carnival procession, there will be activities in Lymington High Street from 10:00 including morris dancing and live music from Samba Panashe.

 

The Carnival Procession starts from the Town Hall in Avenue Road at 11:00 and takes a circular route around the Town:


Avenue Road > Southampton Road A337 > Queen Street A337 > St Thomas’s Street > High Street > Gosport Street > Cannon Street > North Close > East Hill > Avenue Road

This year’s theme is ‘Sport’ and a number of local organisations and businesses will be taking part. We're particularly looking forward to the Colten Care Olympics and wonder what our friends at the RNLI will be getting up to this year! 

Funds raised during the procession street collection will be donated to a number of local charities, local youth and adult voluntary groups and organisations.

Bands participating in the procession: include the Hampshire Caledonian Pipe Band, Raw Samba and the Vectis Corp of Drums.

 

It's going to be a great procession and the weather is promising to be good - do come along and support the procession as it moves around Lymington!

 

Carnival Fete - 12.00 at Lymington Sports Ground

band 2015An important aspect of the carnival in recent years has been the addition of the Carnival Fete at the Lymington Sports Ground, filled with fun activities, interesting stalls and exciting attractions.

 

The fete will open at 12.00 midday, following the carnival procession, and this year has nearly 60 stalls! There will be giant inflatables, a sports participation arena (where people can try a whole host of different sports from Croquet to volleyball), a funfair, some great live bands on the Rivazz entertainment stage, a performing dance troupe and of course the utterly brilliant dog show. Prize giving for the carnival procession will also be at the fete. There will be plenty of food and drink stalls catering for most budgets and food preferences.

 

The fete is free entry - so come along for a fun day out for all the family!
