The glitter and glamour of Gloucester Carnival

The Gloucester Carnival has it’s origins as far back as the 1930’s and has now become an amazing spectacle of floats, in the grand parade and the spectacular fun fair ground.  This is a community, business and individual event that anybody can participate in.  The Carnival floats all have a specific theme on which to design their entries and compete for the grand prize.  In 2019 the design ethos behind the parade was “Myths and Legends” and the procession was led by a dangerous Dragon and fantastic Unicorn floats.  Hundreds of working hours and hard manual labour are spent creating and designing the costumes and the vehicles themselves.
