THREE thousands people enjoyed the fun of Lutterworth’s carnival day.

The much-anticipated event took place on the town’s recreation ground on Saturday afternoon.

It began with the return of the traditional procession of 15 floats that, led by Mayor Philip Toye in an Ariel Atom supercar, made its way from the college and through the town centre to the rec was a host of entertainment and demonstrations.

The day also saw the crowning of the carnival prince Luke Stevens and princess Grace Harrison.

Coun Robert Coleman, who is a member of the town council’s events working party, said: “It was a great day all round and turned out to be another successful Lutterworth Carnival, something for all the community to enjoy.

“Roll on next year where we will hopefully see more participants in the procession.”
