Oundle Gears Up for 2012 Carnival
Oundle will be alive with noise and

holds its annual Carnival celebrations.
This year the event is to consist of a
bigger and better Carnival Parade
followed by a busy afternoon jamboree
of mixed events, displays, stalls and
entertainments at Oundle Rugby Club.

bigger and better every year.
The turnout last summer was excellent and we anticipate more of the same this time around as we have been very busy lining up an amazing day of entertainment.”
The parade which starts at 11am on the Sunday is set to reach new heights and will incorporate an Olympics theme. With a growing reputation, Oundle Carnival has confirmed many new and interesting parade entries including: A large motor yacht from Fairline Boats, a truck pulled by local gym members, various vintage vehicles, many local schools, majorettes, dancers, stilt walkers, three marching brass bands, a troupe of Chinese drummers and also a samba band.
