As promised here are a few of the photos we took at the Dorchester Carnvial on Saturday. Thankfully the weather was very kind to us and stayed fine for the whole day.
OK..... Where do we start! We waved our "Crafty Ribbons" wand and the pumpkin (truck) was turned into a carriage fit for a queen! See it in the procession photos below.
Losers of the Four Legged race who won the wooden spoons (same team as before!) and the winners of the race with their ribboned cup.
Sydney waiting for the procession to start, her little hands were filled with coins. It's started I can hear the band.
Here is our float, covered in ribbons, bows and of course the Carnival Queen and her attendants. All smiles and waving as the procession makes it's way around Dorchester.
There was just so much going on, over 50 floats and walking entries took part. It was rather stressfull for the event crew at times, but they were able to spare a few moments for a photo call!
I hope you enjoyed the carnival with us, there were just so many photos, I only selected a few. Although I have just heard that some of my photographs are going to be included in the special section in the local paper this week....... Will I get a "by line"?!
