Old Town Carnival, Hastings

Old Town Carnival Procession

Theme for 2018:  Anniversaries

The Carnival procession starts at 5pm.  This year judging will take place during the parade, where participants will be judged not only on their costumes or float but on how they entertain and interact with the crowd.

Entrants assemble at Rock-a-Nore.  The Carnival starts at the bottom of All Saints Street and onto the seafront (on the seaward side) goes round the fountain and then returns back along the seafront (on the landward side), turning left into High Street, continuing up the High Street, then across The Bourne and down All Saints Street.
