Luton Carnival a triumph of colour

Carnival is coming back
Carnival is coming back

Thousands of people turned up to watch the spectacular Luton Carnival procession through the town centre today.

At 1.30pm, the famous float – lead by Harminder the remote controlled elephant – left Wardown Park on its way to the town centre.

In town, the main stage at St Georges Square hosted each of the procession’s acts – who danced to a mixture of traditional and comtemporary dance anthems.

After the procession passed the town hall, it returned to Wardown Park where the party continued until 6.30pm.
