Duck race tops the bill as carnival countdown begins

Evesham Editorial 20th Apr, 2018   0

THE COUNTDOWN to this year’s annual Pershore Carnival begins in earnest with the popular Duck Race and selection of this year’s Carnival King and Queen.

Both events will take place on Sunday from 1pm at King George’s Field after the original event was postponed on April 8 because of the wet weather which blighted the area.

Tickets at £2 each for the duck race are on sale now and available from The Star, The New Inn, TC Fireplaces, Lawrence’s Bakery and on the day.

Chairman of Pershore Carnival, Colin Shepherd said: “The duck race is one of our main fund-raising events and in previous years has always been very well supported. We are hoping that the local community will get behind us once again in our Goldern Jubilee year and join in the fun”

This year’s Carnival King and Queen will be chosen at the Riverside Centre from 1pm. Entrants must be nine to 12- years-old and available on Monday, May 28 and willing to take part in any publicity.
