Barlow Carnival 18th Aug2007

Coming to the final engagement of the 2007 season, a parade only at nearby Barlow, this event celebrating its 50th anniversary Carnival.

Even as we were changing into uniform the weather changed to a light drizzle albeit not quiet the heavy rain that had been forecast, making our way down to the start we encountered our friends from Buxton, the Billerettes, Dronfield SJAB Band and the Castleton Silver Brass Band which together helped swell the length of this years parade.

The organisers opted to put the Musketeers in the parade just behind the leading floats and the carnival queen, as the parade moved off and reached the steep hill the band progressed it with consummate ease before commencing to entertain in their own inimitable style with the dance routines to Delilah, Mucho Mambo Sway, Great Escape and the Conga dance as they passed the recreation ground for the first time and up to the turning point by the main well dressing, before returning to the carnival field in the still persisting drizzle, although the crowds still thronged the route to enjoy the passing parade.

Thankfully, no more wet events to bother us this year as we concluded a very successful season.
