The Menai Bridge Carnival turned out to be a hit with the locals once again this year, as hundreds turned up to celebrate the occasion.

The streets of Menai Bridge come to life as floats of all kinds turned up to parade the area on a sunny summer’s day.

Menai Bridge Carnival 2017 Queen Jessie Jones, age 11, and her court led the parade. Menai Bridge Scout Group, including scouts, cubs, beavers and explorers joined forces with the North wales Wildlife Trust to raise awareness of swifts, their decline and the reasons for it.

The ever popular Batala samba and reggae band from Bangor paraded through the town entertaining guests with their lively enditions.

Menai Stars Majorettes dressed as characters from Peter Pan, whilst others dressed as oompa-loompa’s and many other characters from books and films.

There were also many activities, competitions and stalls held throughout the day to keep everybody entertained.

One of the people who attended on the day said: “It was a fantastic event once again this year and was made even better by the fact that the weather was quite nice too. The organisers should be proud of themselves for the fantastic job that they have done with this carnival.”
