Colourful carnival fun will return to the town’s seafront tomorrow

PLENTY of fun is in store tomorrow at the Bognor Regis Carnival.


The return of the annual procession packed with cheers and laughter will take place tomorrow – and will be joined by its first dog show.


Entries will be accepted from midday and the host of classes such as the prettiest bitch, the most handsome dog and the waggiest tail will start at 2pm.


The dog show will take place on the grassed area at West Park.


This will be the fourth year the carnival has been staged by the Bognor Regis Carnival Association.


The carnival parade will form up on The Esplanade at midday.


Its procession of floats, with a West End shows theme, will start at 1.15pm and go along Aldwick Road, Nyewood Lane and Marine Drive West into West Park to the carnival showground.


This will come to life at 2.30pm with the day’s official opening and prize-giving for the winning entries in the parade.


Prizes of up to £150 will be given for the best mixed bunch group and juvenile and senior groups among others.


A full range of entertainment will then take place in the showground. The Bournemouth Youth Marching Band, who are leading the parade, will be the first performers.


The Suzanne Hill School of Dancing and the Wiltshire Army Cadet Force drill display will also perform.
