Town To Hold A Virtual Carnival Day 11th July

l
While we can’t come together to create our usual Town Carnival this summer, Houghton Regis Town Council is still hoping to bring the joy of carnival to you!

Clips and videos from the previous carnival processions will be bolted together so that a programme of events can be assembled for a great big virtual community Carnival. This will be available online throughout the day on Saturday 11th July starting with an Offical Opening from the Town Mayor at 9.55am – The Town Council is hoping that this will be just like the real thing but over the airwaves!

The Town Council want Houghton Regis Virtual Carnival 2020 to be an opportunity to celebrate together, SAFELY, being part of this wonderful community of ours and to mark positively how everyone has been so supportive of one another during these difficult times.

Below is a schedule of events that we know about so far. Full information available from the Houghton Regis Virtual Carnival 2020 Page on Facebook.

Meanwhile, at Houghton Regis News Desk, we thought you'd like to look back at the 1957 Houghton Regis Fair, to start getting you in the mood:
