The weekend saw the return of my local carnival, following a break last year. Wellington Carnival started with a parade in town making it's way to the local park, where lots of activities took place throughout the day.
The parade consisted of Girl Guiding groups, a local pub raising money for Help for Hero's, The Birmingham Irish Pipers (who were very good and I hope they come back next year), the Carnival Queen of course, Chinese Dragon dancers, the Lions Club and Boys Brigade.
In the park there was a great display from the Whitchurch Dog Display Team, a real crowd pleaser. Feather Perfect Falconry had some magnificent birds of prey, sadly I missed the falconry display they put on in the arena. However I did get to see some of the birds up close. There were donkey rides too, much to the delight of my niece.

This year there was a special food area with a Pig Roast, Samosa, Mexican, Indian, Cakes and cake stalls to name but a few and of course a beer tent.
Of course drawn to all the cakes displayed at The Little Round Cake Company stall. I picked three cakes, a white chocolate brownie and two massive meringues. Obviously not all for myself, something to take home and enjoy a little later.

I just hope Wellington Carnival continues next year, for all those involved in its organisation - thank you!
