Carnival Time: Balloons, Sunshine and Fun!

Corfe Mullen's 48th Annual Carnival procession brought out the crowds on Saturday. Led by Dorset Youth Marching Band it also included, on floats and in walking tableaux, the Beavers, Cubs, Brownies, Meridian Corps of Drums, Samba Panashe, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang et al.

After the procession arrived at the recreation ground the carnival was officially opened by the Carnival Princess and her two attendants with the release of 48 colourful balloons.

The main arena event was the Tigers Children's Motorcycle Display Team who thrilled the crowd riding in figures of eight, through fire, and jumping over a car.

There were all the usual attractions such as fairground rides, tombola, steam-powered equipment and classic cars, and away from the main arena the Scouts ran an archery taster.

The weather was almost made-to-order and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves.
