AFTER months of planning, the Rhyl Carnival is just around the corner.

The event, which was started in 1891, returns on Sunday June 23 for a another pageant filled with fancy floats, a regal retinue and more.

The town’s royalty for 2019 have been chosen and crowned, with May Queen Summer Heywood, Princess Tilly Williams, Rhyl Rosebud Grace-Leigh Lewis, Petal Dixie Rawlinson, Cymru Petal Olivia Mae Lewis and Miss Rhyl Chloe Lee taking pride of place.

This year’s parade will start from Quay Street at 12pm, moving along Wellington Road to the High Street and on to Vale before finishing at Coronation gardens at about 1.15p.

Joining the town’s royals will be Queens from other towns across North Wales, as well as colourful floats for youth groups including the Brownies and other assorted groups.

At Coronation Gardens, there will be a variety of stalls, go karting, a fair, bouncy castle, Mr Magico’s Punch & Judy show and many more attraction.

There will be a dog show with a variety of competition categories, a baby show for newborns to children aged five and a ‘Best Dressed Mobility Scooter’ competition.

The organisers are also seeking face painters for the day, anyone wishing to join can contact Gill Parry on 01745332967.
