There is a fairground, stalls and much more across the weekend. The event is run by a small team of volunteers and they are really eager for the community to come out and support the carnival.

Sunday sees entertainment on the stage from 12.30-4pm including Good Vibrations, Footlights, Diva Dance, Zumba and April Marchington. At 3pm the Bonny Baby competition starts and at 4pm, with the prize draw taking place directly afterwards.
Treasurer of the Failsworth Carnival Committee, Enid Bell, said: “The weather forecast if looking good. Please line the streets for the parade and bring your money. Every penny collected goes towards the 2019 carnival.”
