Slideshow: Crowds gather for Ilkeston Carnival

Waiting for Video...

Hundreds of people lined the streets and packed out the Rutland Recreation Ground for this year’s carnival.

Floats made their way through the town centre to the carnival show ground on Saturday lunch time.

Emmaleigh Syson, 15, was chosen by the organisers, Ilkeston Lions, as this year’s carnival queen and was at the front of the procession.

The ‘Tiser was there taking photographs of all of the floats fun activities on offer.
