#CountryKids – Uckfield Carnival

This week’s CountryKids involves the Uckfield carnival.
Every year in the first week of September the town hosts it’s carnival with the main highlight being a torch light parade through the town. During the afternoon they do a children’s parade with the various schools dressing up, which in the future will no doubt include Aly.

The main part of the carnival takes part in the evening, so we got the girls ready and headed out to watch the show. Both the girls had their purses fully of change to put in the various collection pots including their favourite which was dressed up like an Angry Bird.

The real favourite was the fire torches that went right past them.

By the end of the evening the girls we’re so tired it didn’t take them long to fall asleep.

    The Boy is yet to encounter a carnival like this, looks like it was great fun. I bet the torch procession was quite amazing to watch?

    We have a a carnival parade at the beginning of summer but I like the idea of a torch lit one, quite jealous.
