Totton CarnivalOn Saturday 18th June everyone will be flocking to watch Totton Carnival. It will be a day full of fun and laughter as the streets come to life!

Totton Carnival

It is a great day out for all the friends and family, a giant parade with an amazing fun fair waiting for you on the other side! It all sounds so exciting! Every year the theme changes and this year the theme is ‘Party on Down’ so you’re in for a treat! You will be joined by party animals, disco diva’s, punk rockers and so much more. The parade is made up from a whole range of different participants, such as floats, dancers, bikers and even the marching band who put on a jolly good show. It’s defiantly something you don’t want to miss. Every year the event is held by the Totton Carnival Committee to fundraise for local charities. This year’s benefactors will be Youth & Families Matter and Age UK New Forest. Two amazing Charities!

The Parade sets off at 4pm from Calmore Industrial Estate, where you will be greeted by 15 or more bikers will take the lead. The parade will then head through the centre of Totton, all the way down Salisbury Road, past Asda and finish in Eling, where there will be a fun fair and bands for later in the evening.

Fun Fair

As you may know every year the parade ends at Eling Recreation Ground, were the fields are just full of thrilling rides and great attractions for all age groups. The fun fair is provided by Charles Cole and it opens 1 week before the carnival and closes the Sunday after. A stage and bar are also provided with a wild range of music and icy refreshments to keep the mood going. It’s the perfect day out for all the family and there is no better way to end the day than at funfair stuffed on candyfloss. Am I right?

It seems like you are all in for one crazy fun-filled day on the 18th June.  Make sure you are there supporting your local community, your loved ones and, of course, having a great time! Party on Down to Totton Carnival as you’re in for a treat.
