The Long Eaton Community Carnival Association is a group of volunteers who stage the Long Eaton Community Carnival each year. The primary objective of the association is "to involve all sections of the community in engendering community spirit by organising an annual carnival and associated events" (according to the Association''s constitution).
The carnival comprises a Road Parade through the town, followed by all sorts of display and events on West Park. The Road Parade sets off at 11am, follows the route described on the Road Parade page, and arrives back on the Carnival site somewhere between 12:30 and 1:00pm. That's when the Carnival is officially opened.
And the best bit is that it's FREE! There is no charge for coming along.
The carnival is held on the third Saturday in June: the 2016 carnival will be on Saturday 18th June.
