Pinchbeck held its first ever carnival in 1977 to mark the Queen’s Silver Jubilee and the Queen’s 90th birthday has been at the heart of this year’s celebrations.

The parade was led by the village’s royal float with Carnival Queen Annie Kinsella and Princesses Teigan Burrill and Katelyn Brocklehurst.

The royal theme continued with the official opening of the event by Spalding Tulip Queen Ella Holbrook and her deputy, Monika Biernacka.

Today’s events started with a united church service, followed by a picnic in the park.

There’s still time to join in the fun as afternoon highlights will include children’s races with medals at 2pm and fun tug of war about 3.15pm. Organisers say the times given are a rough guide.
