The Carnival is coming to town!

Ilkeston Lions present their 28th Ilkeston Carnival on Saturday 9th June at the town’s Rutland Recreation Ground.
The popular family-themed event will be open from 12 noon until 5 pm and will feature a multitude of stalls as well as food, drinks and funfair rides.
There will be lots of fun to be had in the arena with a tug of war competition, magician, dance performances from the Ilkeston and Arnold based Dance Divaz, the amazing gymnastic talents of the Nottingham based Flying Angel Dakos and displays from Erewash Valley Gymnastics.
Councillor Michael Wallis, Lead Member for Culture and Leisure, said:
“Well done to Ilkeston Lions for once again organising this annual Ilkeston Carnival, it is always a big draw for the town and I’m sure there will be lots of people down at the recreation ground enjoying the fun and entertainment on offer.”
Residents should note there is no parade through the town this year, just the carnival events and activities at Rutland Recreation Ground.
