“Show must go on” – Pudsey hosts online carnival this weekend

It’s going to take more than the coronavirus pandemic to stop Pudsey people celebrating their popular annual carnival.

Thousands of Pudsey folk should have been looking forward to a procession through the town centre and activities and a fun fair on Queens Park tomorrow (Saturday, 16 May 2020).

Volunteer organisers had to postpone the popular annual event back in March – and instead they’re running a series of events online via Facebook to mark the popular May event.

There will be a colouring competition, with past photos of the carnival on the carnival’s Facebook page. People will also be encouraged to share previous year’s photos.

Instead of a dog show there will be a pet competition where you upload your pet on the page through the day. No charge for entry and the winners will get a certificate.

Instead of floats winding their way through the town in a parade, PDS Windows are sponsoring a “virtual” parade featuring floats made out of boxes. No theme. Again, share your photos on the Facebook page.

Keep your eye on Facebook for more events and details.

The Carnival committee is running a 20/20 fundraiser for a 20th defibrillator in Pudsey for the year 2020. Check out the fundraiser here.
