Waterloo streets come alive with carnival spirit

The 2006 Waterloo Carnival was the biggest and best yet, with a procession winding its way through the streets of Waterloo and an expanded Lower Marsh market.

For 2006 the event was moved from a September afternoon to a July lunchtime, with lots more people around in Lower Marsh to enjoy the fun.

The carnival procession featured the pupils of Johanna Primary School and other members of the local community aged from 2 to 82.

The procession from Johanna School to Waterloo Millennium Green via Lower Marsh and the Tanswell Estate was helped on its way by a Rio-style marching samba band.

In Lower Marsh the market boasted extra stalls selling food and drink to extend the carnival atmosphere through the day.

The Waterloo Carnival is a collaboration between a number of local organisations led by the Waterloo Arts & Events Network and the Waterloo Quarter Business Alliance.
