Trimley Carnival 8th Felixstowe Scouts

The sun eventually broke through the clouds for the Trimley carnival today – and the weather looks good for tomorrow as well.

The annual event has been run over two days for the first time this year and has plenty of entertainment for all ages.

Chairman of the carnival committee Sharon Iannuzzi said she was pleased with how the event was going.

“My new committee took over last year and had we not taken over the running of the carnival it would have folded last year,” she said.

“We were so pleased with how it went last year we thought we’d try two days.

“Last year we raised £2,500 and this year it would be nice to reach £3,000.”

The money raised helps fund the carnival and also goes to local good causes.

Among the attractions this year are a variety of craft and charity stalls, fairground attractions, bouncy castles and a barbeque.

And on Sunday there is also an It’s a Knockout style event for teams, with the course then opened up for the public in the afternoon.

The event, which had the theme of Countries of the World Cup, began today with a procession from Faulkeners Way to the Trimley Sports and Social Club.

It would take a phenomenal effort to produce a bad Dirty Dancing show. The 1987 coming-of-age drama is ripe for any interpretation: iconic music, a timeless script, a clear story with emotional depth, relatable characters and well-defined goals, and of course, some pretty captivating dancing.

The finer points of his space suit have been painted on, he has been shipped back to Ipswich and been glossed to protect him from the weather - and now Major Tim Pig is just waiting to land in the town centre.
