Whitehaven Carnival Queens

Another successful event for Whitehaven this year was the annual carnival. For the last few years it has been getting bigger and better and this year scorching sunshine ensured huge crowds of people lining the streets to watch. Worries that the rum festival procession earlier in the year might detract from the established carnival appear unfounded and a few of the colourful costumes from that event were used again in this procession.

The carnival queens were as usual the most important part of the parade with their magnificently decorated floats. Hours of work from volunteers making the hundreds of paper flowers paid off and plenty of imagination had gone into the design of these mobile palaces.
