Hucknall Christmas Carnival 5th December

Christmas is coming and the Christmas carnivals and Lights switch ons are in full swing.  This evening Gail and I took two of our grandchildren, Maddeleine and Francesca to see the Carnival at Hucknall, at the invitation of Hucknall President, Ian Young.

We arrived about 6pm to find the fun fair in full swing and packed with people.   There was a disco adjacent to it (a very loud disco) that was attracting the youngsters.

The lights were switched on just after 7pm and the illuminated Carnival parage came through the main street to the Market Plcae about 7.45pm.  The Rotary Club of Hucknall Santa Sleigh was very impressive with its illuminated reindeer - put my own club's in the shade somewhat.

When the children had had enough of the fair and the lights we wandered back down the street to the Tesco car park for the trip home.    We did manaage to call for some festive fair on the way back to the car.

A great evening.    Well done to Hucknall for being involved.
