Summer isn’t summer without a good old-fashioned carnival, and that is exactly what Bognor Regis Town Council provides with their amazing annual celebration of the community! The floats will leave West Park ( 2 miles west of Butlin’s) at 2pm and travel down throughout the seaside town, providing you with an afternoon of laughter, music and fancy dress! I love seeing the creativity behind each and every float, this really is a great opportunity to take part in a real community-spirited event that supports local businesses and charities,
If you don’t fancy taking part in the parade, you can always visit some of the fantastic stalls that are on offer, see a live band or view the great selection of entertainment being performed in the arena and in Bognor Regis town centre. You’ll really feel in the centre of a great community with this event, bringing a smile to your summer’s day!
