With the weather holding out, at least in the afternoon, Carnival 2017 was another highly successful event.
The weekend has become a highlight of the annual carnival calendar and the great people of Manchester, along with those who attended from throughout Britain, did not disappoint us again. The parade was as spectacular and stunning as ever, with a diversity of fantastic Mas Bands, floats and costumes on show. Much fun was had by all.
The carnival organisers wish to thank everyone who attended to make carnival 2017 a special occasion to remember.
