Watch the Newquay Carnival Parade

It's Carnival Week in Newquay, culminating today with a parade organised by the local Lions club with lots of fancy dress and decorated floats. We are told that this afternoon will see float building at the Buccaneer Bay attraction thing in the town and then from 6pm the procession will make its way across town.

Parading alongside the floats will be bands of various kinds, including a jazz band, two samba bands and three marching bands as well as some dancers.

  1. July in the southern hemisphere is not the happiest time of year - grey, cold mornings, constantly drizzly. I don't like it at all! So it is always good to see people having outdoor fun in July.

    Do the jazz bands perform locally, after the carnival parade is over?
