Adding to all this fun, there are going to be funfair rides, huge inflatables, face-painting, glitter games and stalls.
For those who have missed Martlets
much-loved Snails, there will also be a last chance take one home as the
Hove Carnival raffle this year offers an exclusive opportunity to win a
Geronimo Junior Snail.
The carnival is completely free to attend and always proves to be a popular family event. Last year three thousand people came to to the event to raise vital funds for Martlets, a charity that cares for people who are living with a terminal illness and support their families.
Charlotte Bolton from the Martlets Fundraising team has commented:
“We are so excited about this year’s Hove Park Carnival with so many brilliant stall holders and a packed day of entertainments and amusements for young and old. There really is something for everyone this year!
“We hope that people will put the date in their diaries and come and
enjoy a fantastic community event that raises such important funds for
Martlets to provide the very best care and support for local people.”
