2016 Aldeburgh Carnival
By Henry Giles
It’s enough to make you want to run away to the circus. The 2016 Aldeburgh Carnival day dawned on Monday 15 August and a great warm-up was provided by the lifeboat launch and attendant helicopter. Then it was all action as the afternoon’s events included Suffolk Samba, full military band, circus dancing girls, music, entertainment and later in the day the famous Lantern parade and fireworks on the beach. Despite the gusty, windy conditions many kept their lanterns going and those that didn’t lit up with
glow-bracelets and a great atmosphere suffused with feel good party spirit late into the night.
