'Tremendous' atmosphere at annual Marlow Carnival

Tara O'Connor


Music, dancing and a barbecue were among the attractions at this year's Marlow Carnival.

The annual event took place in Higginson Park on Saturday.

The day started with a parade of about 200 children from the cricket ground ending with a dance in the main arena.

Costumes were straight from the home of carnival, with a Rio theme that tied in with the Olympics.

The carnival is organised by the Marlow Community Association, made up of organisations from the town.

Throughout the day there was a range of musical performances, a barbecue, tea and cakes and an obstacle course.

Organiser Peter Donegan said: "It is a tremendous atmosphere - the carnival has become a really good community thing.

"We have had a really good turn out and the parade was lovely and colourful.

"There were children from nurseries and schools with their teachers and parents, it was very well supported."
