The theme for this year’s Dalton Carnival is

Flags & Bunting.


The Dalton Carnival Committee would love as many people as possible to get involved and decorate the town. If you are a local business, school and voluntary group why not enter a float or join the parade?


All themed entries in the parade will be judged and  the winner will receive a trophy.


So get your thinking caps on, whatever it is, now is your chance to get creative.
