Photos: Ramsgate carnival 2017

Ramsgate carnival fun in July Photo Frank Leppard

The skies were grey but the rain held off during today’s Ramsgate Carnival parade.

Crowds turned out to watch scores of floats set off from Royal Esplanade to make a circuit of the town.

Family fun was also taking place on Government Acre with music, stalls and rides.

Floats included those from East Kent Soccer School, Lark in the Park, the Sadlers, Macies and Hotel de Ville pubs, majorettes, carnival courts, fitness groups and more.

The action was captured in these great photos by Brian Whitehead, Adam Dark and Frank Leppard.
