Halesworth prepares for carnival on Sunday
A lively convoy of colour and sound is set to flood the streets of Halesworth on Sunday.
The town's summer carnival returns for its annual outing, with a vibrantly-decorated fleet of floats expected to lead the traditional procession.
The parade, which is organised by Halesworth Lions, has been a yearly custom for almost two decades, and this year the theme is open to interpretation.
John Keeble, Lions club carnival committee chairman, said: 'People can do whatever they like this time. Perhaps they have been to other carnivals and would like to use the same theme – or they could bear in mind the Jubilee or the Olympics.'
The parade will travel from Blyth Road at about 1pm, before continuing through The Thoroughfare and on to the Town Park where there will be a range of entertainment.

At 5pm all eyes will turn to the Town River as the annual duck race takes place. The popular spectacle will see up to 2,000 ducks making their way downstream in competition for a �100 first prize.
Money raised from the carnival, which is this year being sponsored by Spectra Packaging and the Ipswich Building Society, will be given to local charities.
