All set for "best ever" St Ishmaels Carnival

First published in News

With cash prizes, cartoon favourites and plenty of fancy dress fun, today's St Ishmaels Carnival promises to be the best one yet.

Taking place this afternoon, Saturday, August 9, the open-themed parade will start from North Hall Estate at 2pm, with entry from 1.30pm at North Hall.

The parade, which will consist of floats and walkers, will go through the village before eventually ending up at the sports field.

At the sports field there will be a children’s entertainer, magician, fairground and a live set on stage by musician Steve Bartram, plus plenty more.

And mingling with the crowd will be characters from the popular Disney film Frozen.

There will be cash prizes for best floats and walking entries.

Tickets to Folly Farm, Heatherton and Manor House Wildlife Park will be among the great prizes on offer in the raffle.

The party continues into the evening as comedian and singer Paul Dazeley is to take the stage.

He will be supported by the popular DJ Mark Devs Disco.

Committee member Adrian Griffiths, one of the main carnival organisers, said he has been “overwhelmed” with the support he has received from local companies and businesses.

He added he’s extremely grateful to the carnival’s main sponsor GenPower, which has kindly donated a lawn mower as a prize for the most exceptional carnival float or walking entry.

He also thanked Pembrokeshire Building and Plumbing supplies, which is sponsoring the tug of war.

There will be a £1 entry fee to the carnival field asked as a donation.
