The weather managed to stay nice for the journey from Pear Tree Street to the Market Place. This year there were local groups such as the Calidoscpio drummers and Rampage Sports Band as well as dance troupes from Luton and Leeds.

The volume from the massive speaker systems was hard to cope with on the recording. I have reduced the volume post production in Sony Vegas.
I have not seen the carnival for a few years, there did not seem to be as many dancers compared with last time. Is this the case do you think?
the parade started off at least 30 mins late from Pear Tree Street which meant that the dancers had to rush.
