Family fun at Peel Carnival

Waiting for Video...

There was fun for all the family at the annual Peel Carnival.

Events included live music, street entertainment and a circus skills area as well as the main parade.

Among the floats in the parade were a Vee Dub driven by Maeve Quaye as well as Peel-built P50s, Tridents and Vikings.

These cars were taking part in the Peels to Peel Festival to commemorate 50 years since 1964, the year in which most of the Peel cars were built.

Carnival princess was Latisha Thomas, aged 10. Peel Commissioners chairman Ray Harmer said: ‘The carnival was a wonderful success and a great family day.

‘It was a real treat to see all the culmination of the P50 rally and their participation in the carnival.

‘The weather stayed fair and there was so much going on, with the stalls, bands, entertainment, and the carnival procession itself.

‘The steel band were amazing and full of energy. The day finished with a brilliant firework display.

‘A special thanks to Ian Baker and the carnival committee and the enormous work they have done and to Sam Knight and Grant Kearney for bringing over the P50s.’
