Five events in four days made the Tring Carnival go with a bang once again.
Starting off with Tring Cinema’s Grease sing-a-long night, which sold out the internet of ‘Pink Lady’ and ‘T-Bird’ fancy dress outfits, Tring Carnival continued its community spirit by hosting the Pepper Foundation and Rennie Grove Hospice Care, which each organised brilliant live music evenings in aid of their good causes and got everyone up and dancing.
The highlight was Tring Carnival Day, which this year had a seaside theme. Crowds lined the High Street as the parade opened the day and led everyone to Pound Meadow where there were stalls, the Tring Brewery bar marquee, dog show and beautiful vintage cars. A huge helter skelter, bubbleologists and pony rides delivered on the seaside theme, while vivacious seaside acrobats – The Acro-Chaps – wowed everyone with their strength and skill (and moustaches!). There was also a fancy dress competition and some impressive live performances in the main arena by local community groups. The Carnival came to an end in true Proms style when the RAF Halton Voluntary Band and the Castle Choir performed stunningly in aid of SSAFA, the armed forces charity.
Steffi Buse from Tring Together said: ‘We would like to thank everyone involved in the event from sponsors and partners to volunteers, community groups, local businesses and charities. It has been a fantastic event and we cannot wait to see you all again in 2019!’
