This year Sudbury’s Carnival Queen will receive £100 along with other prizes donated by carnival sponsors.
Entrants must be over 16. Girls aged five to 15 can enter to be Carnival Princesses. There is also a prince competition for boys aged five to 15.
The selection will take place at the Snooker club in North Street on May 20. To enter email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07917850240.
Carnival committee member Jack Owen said: “We are delighted with the support of our sponsors who have made it possible to expand the event this year to encourage a greater number of contestants.
“The carnival itself is coming together quite nicely with a promise from Wiles Contractors to supply any vehicle within their range that may be required. We still have spaces for individuals or groups to enter the procession.”
There are still a few pitches left for the post-procession event in Belle Vue Park. To get involved email email@example.com or call 07860860193.
A craft fair is being held to raise funds for the carnival at St Peter’s Church, Sudbury, on March 25, 9am to 3pm.
