RHUDDLAN Carnival's parade will go ahead this year after fears it could have been cancelled.

Organisers called on community groups wanting to take part to get in touch ahead of a last-ditch meeting on the parade held last month.

Thanks to a high level of interest, the parade will take place during this Saturday's carnival.

Ruth Archer, of Ysgol Y Castell PTA and the carnival organising committee, said: "The meeting went well and we had a good response.

"The parade ended up becoming feasible, people got in touch and said they wanted to be part of it."

Groups taking part include martial arts clubs, dance groups, children's organisations and members of the emergency services there will also be appearances by cartoon characters including Peppa Pig, Minnie Mouse, Buzz Lightyear, Disney princesses and Fireman Sam from North Wales Party Animals.

Rhuddlan Carnival is organised for the benefit of the community by Ysgol Y Castell PTA and all proceeds go towards the PTA to fund projects within the school and other community events.

The parade starts in Highlands Road at 12pm and will proceed through the High Street to Ysgol y Castell on Hylas Lane, where the carnival will be held.

Entry is £1 per adult, accompanied children are free, unaccompanied children 50p and attractions will include the great Rhuddlan bake off, a floral art competition, bouncy castles and inflatables, displays from local groups and attractions, music, stalls, competitions, prizes and raffles.
