Lovely pics Janette. For years the carnival procession used to pass our house, bringing all the neighbours out to watch, but this year they changed the route - I was SO disappointed!

Hope all is good with you?

Hugs

Great pics,Janette, it must have taken people ages to decorate the floats but they look marvellous. Nice to see the kids on them, must have been quite a day for them. Glad you had a great time and that the weather was kind to them all. CoB
