Peel Carnival

by Valerie Caine 26th February 2017

Despite unfavourable weather conditions, Peel Carnival went ahead with a day of activities including staged entertainment around the promenade and quayside, a variety of stalls and the highlight of the day the carnival parade.


It was a great community event which appealed to all members of the family, and attracted visitors to watch a cross-section of performers, a myriad of walking tableaux, floats and a small selection of classic vehicles.


Over £1,000 of cash prizes were on offer for those with a creative flair who put their heads together to make imaginative floats and decorative costumes, which were judged at the House of Manannan, prior to the Grand Parade.


Street entertainment included the popular Team Power Stilts guys who made their debut last year, and the talented members of the Panfire Steel Band from Manchester; a small band with a big sound!
