Wombourne Carnival 2016

Wombourne Carnival 2016

Wombourne Carnival was a huge success this year and many people were overheard saying it was the best one they’d been to. The theme this year was the Great British Seaside.

According to the Express & Star article:

“The theme worked so well, we had sandpits to build sandcastles, swingboats, donkey rides, fish and chips – everything for a proper, classic great British day at the seaside.

“I think we had anything from 6,000 to 8,000 people turn out. Wombourne was full!

“I’m just so proud of everyone that has taken part and helped to make it such a success.”

Wombourne Online would like to congratulate the team involved and everyone that made the day possible. It’s a huge amount of preparation, planning and setting up.

The weather also helped.

Here is a quick video of Wombourne Carnival 2016 with highlights from this great day:
