GALLERY: Crowds delight in the fun and frolics at Soham Carnival

THOUSANDS of people turned out to enjoy the traditional mix of heavy horses and fairground fun as the Soham Carnival returned to the town on Bank Holiday Monday.

Now in its 59th year, the carnival is one of the highlights in the town’s calendar and once again proved a roaring success, with people turning out in their droves to enjoy a host of fun and frolics.

This year, the town’s recreation ground played host to a parade, a display from Team Extreme, vintage and classic cars, sports competitions, the raptor foundation, human hamster balls, grafitti demonstrations, model railways, the Viva Youth Theatre and plenty more besides.

There was also a live music stage with DJ and plenty of local music acts.

The much-loved parade of heavy horses once again took place, with winners enjoying star billing at a special prize-giving.
