We were at the Pinchbeck Carnival on Saturday for another summer weekend of fun and festivities, based at the village’s Rotten Row Playing Field.

The Carnival kicked off at noon with the Pinchbeck Parade winding its way through the village, displaying a stunning selection of floats crafted by a number of local groups and businesses.

Riding in the parade procession, and joining in the festivities, were Pinchbeck Carnival Queen, Esther Howard, along with ten-year-old Princess Abigail Slade and eight-year-old Prince Thomas Wright.

The Parade procession finished at the Playing Field at 1pm, where people got a closer look at the floats, as well as engage in the variety of events and entertainment on offer; events that included tombola’s, raffles, lucky dips, various games, and the traditional fancy dress competition.

As always, Tulip Radio were broadcasting live on the day, providing the soundtrack for the occasion and introducing a wide variety of entertainment and demonstrations in the main ring.

The day ended with the perennial question, ‘Has Pinchbeck Got Talent?’ This talent show, hosted by Tulip Radio, was a rousing success, with many people taking a shot at their 15 minutes of fame. The show provided the perfect finish to a fine day, and even unveiled some hidden gems of talent living around the area.

Congratulations to all the winners, it was especially nice to see Pinchbeck East Primary School singing their hearts out together, they wowed the audience and judges and well done to their Volunteer Teacher, the children did you proud.

Thanks go to the organisers, those on the stalls, and everyone else who made it a fantastic day. It was a little cold and windy but that didn’t deter anyone from enjoying the day.
