Yeehaw... Sawtry Carnival with a Wild West theme in pictures

A rootin’ tootin’ good time was had by all as the Sawtry Carnival took over the village on Saturday afternoon with a Wild West theme.

The colourful parade of floats, cars and dressed up local groups made its way around the village at 12noon led by this year’s Carnival Court – Queen Izzy, Princess Betsy, Princess Emily, Prince Freddie and Rosebud Lenaia.

The carnival itself had more than 40 stalls selling gifts and crafts plus those headed by local groups and charities, fairground rides for the youngsters, a food court and licensed bar plus entertainment from local groups and two live bands.

An organiser commented: “There was an amazing turnout for the whole afternoon, and so many people embraced the Wild West theme too.

"There was also great feedback form visitors and vendors.”
