Princesses and villains are set to team up with Woody and Buzz Lightyear in the streets of Halesworth for this year’s Lions carnival.

Walt Disney films has been chosen as the theme of the event on Sunday, June 14 with decorated floats, cars and individuals joining the procession throughout the town.

It sets off at 1pm from Blyth Road industrial estate and makes its way to the town park where a fete is taking place from 12pm.

Hundreds of people are expected to line the streets for the parade and attend the fete where entry is free.

John Keeble, a member of Halesworth Lions and the organiser of this year’s carnival, said: “There will be attractions for all the family, including a Punch and Judy show, clowns, face painting, a variety of stalls and music from Suffolk Samba Band.”
