The Carnival Committee writes to say: "Audlem Carnival Day is Bank Holiday Monday, 28th May.
"Started in 1812, Audlem Carnival was held to celebrate the end of the harvest. A number of years ago, it was moved to the May Bank Holiday and since then has gone from strength to strength whilst maintaining the traditional approach to the Carnival.
"As regular visitors and participants will know, the Audlem Carnival features side shows; dancing troupes; local stalls; a funfair; marching bands; floats – with senior and junior classes, and fancy dress (under 5years; 5-8 years; 9-12 years; adults). Refreshments are also available in the Public Hall.
"Our theme this year for floats and the fancy dress competitions is both "100 Years of Scouting" and "The 60th Wedding Anniversary of the Queen", or is open to whatever you fancy.
"Floats can be a car, tractor, wagon, a trailer – anything, so long as it has wheels or can move with the parade or, indeed, march with the bands and other walkers. Should anyone in your organisation wish to enter a float they would be most welcome.
"It's free and a fun day for all the family. Let's make the Carnival the best ever."
