Carnival fever will hit north Pembrokeshire today (Saturday, August 23) with crowds expected to line the streets of St Davids and Fishguard to see the processions going through.

Fishguard Carnival is organised by Fishguard and District Round Table, which this year is celebrating its 50th anniversary.

The procession will start at 12.30pm at Goodwick Moor car park and will travel through Goodwick and Fishguard, before arriving in Lota Park.

A prize of £250 will be awarded to the best float.

Attractions in the field include music from the award-winning Goodwick Brass Band, a display from Pembrokeshire Falconry, as well as performances from Mr Wilson’s Second Liners, a jazz band, Slicks Martial Arts Display Team and the West Wales Academy of Dance Troop.

Visitors can also expect to be wowed by the annual Fishguard’s Got Talent competition.

Meanwhile down the road in St Davids the floats and walkers in fancy dress will gather at Oriel y Parc at 2pm.

As usual the parade, led by Milford Brass Band, will make its way through the city and finish at the rugby club, where there will be plenty for all the family, including sport events for the children, an adult tug of war competition, a bungee run, fun fair and a workshop with Maddie and Penny.

In the evening there will be entertainment put on in the rugby club, with a performance by local band Random Perception amongst others.
