Bangor Carnival 2012!


If after the exams and highly anticipated summer ball, you’re hanging around Bangor for a little longer you might be wondering if there is anything to get up to. Well you’ll be happy to hear that the 3rd annual Bangor CARNIVAL is rolling into town on Saturday 9th June and is expected to be bigger and better than ever.

After the protests in Bangor three years ago about the lack of pride and sense of community in the area, a group of residents took it upon themselves to create this event for everyone to enjoy. The day will start with a parade from 11am starting at Sackville Road, all along the high street down to Beach Road, involving a samba band, Pontio’s own sound cart and a 30ft Chinese dragon. A mixture of local and university clubs and societies will also be participating so you might spot a friend to cheer on!

After the parade, Beach Road will be transformed and will be holding a Fun Fair, climbing wall, hog Roast, beer tents, a clairvoyant, and stalls selling local crafts and goods, as well as other carnival activities. Entry is completely free, so it is a great excuse for a cheap day out. Everyone is welcome so feel free to join in the fun.

The carnival are also after any budding photographers for the day. References will be provided. If interested/further details can email
