The Caribbean Carnival

Date: 23/05/11
Lancashire County - Preston

King & Queen Contest


The King and Queen contest was greeted by glorious sunshine as it returned to Preston this year to mark the start of Caribbean Carnival season!

Teams from local carnival bands competed head to head outside the Harris museum in a glittering spectacle of dancing, costumes and music.


This year's Guild carnival King & Queen will lead the procession through the city on Sunday 3rd of June.

Joining the Royals to perform will be Reggae artist Big Mel, who gave us a tune!
