Family fun is on offer this Saturday, August 22, in Kettering when the town’s carnival takes place.

The carnival fete takes place at the Rockingham Road Pleasure Park between 11am and 5.30pm where there will be a mix of stalls, burger vans, bouncy castles and other children’s entertainment.

The parade takes place from about 12.30pm at the Grange Estate, although floats will be in place from about midday when the judging will take place.

The carnival court were crowned on Thursday night at the Athletic Club on Rockingham Road, with Brogan Thompson taking the title of carnival queen.

Also crowned were Coralie Pearce (senior princess), Ellie-May Turner (junior queen) and Ebony Brown (junior princess).
