Thame Carnival rolls back into town this month and promises to bring with it a festival of colour and fun.

This year’s theme is musical extravaganza and there can be a safe expectation that hundreds of people will go all out to dress up for the parade.

Money made from the day on June 15 will go towards helping Thame Youth Centre attempting to stay open seven days a week.

Committee chairman Mark Green said: “There’s nothing for youngsters to do here.

This will help get young kids off the street on a wet Wednesday or any other day.”

From 12pm schools, residents and businesses will dress up and parade through the town centre to the Southern Road Recreation Ground where the party will just be getting started.

Due to the generosity of everyone who helped, donated and gave up their time the last two carnivals have raised a massive £4,600 for a variety of local charities.

The day will feature live music, a dog show, fair ground rides, a bouncy castle, a raffle and go karts among many other things.

There is guaranteed to be something for all the family at the free event.

The carnival wants as many schools and businesses to take part and be part of the carnival.
