RHYL carnival is to return this year after last year's event was cancelled.

Rhyl May Day Association is staging a carnival fun day on Sunday, July 27 at Rhyl High School playing fields in Trynewedd Road.

But the annual parade will not go ahead this year but organisers hope it will return in 2015.

Oraginser Gill Parry said: "Due to several circumstances beyond our control we won't be having a parade but I'm sure the fun day will make up for it.

"We have a fair, baby show, Queeen's competition, and daywear competition, fancy dress competition, glamorous granny competition, stalls, donkey rides, Morris dancers, a car boot, party animals, and lots of other fun things."

Last year both the parade and carnival were cancelled for the first time in the event's 122 year history outside of of the Second World War.

The event committee cited a lack of funds and community interest.

Gill added: "We hope we get a big response from the people of Rhyl to enable us to put on a parade and carnival in 2015."

The field will be open at 11am with free entrance.

Cllr David Simmons, mayor of Rhyl, said: "It is good news for the town that this has been re-instated.

"I welcome its return and wish it every success. I will be attending and I hope it can be re-instated into a full-blown parade next year."

Booking in for the Queen's competition and day wear competition start at midday with judging starting at 1pm.

Booking in for the baby show, fancy dress, and glamorous granny competitions starts at 1.30pm starts at 2pm.
