Bloxwich Carnival 2015 Photo Feature

The weather was certainly a sizzler for much of the afternoon!

The weather was with us in Bloxwich yesterday, offering a summer sizzler for much of the afternoon, and so were the crowds – at Bloxwich Carnival in King George V Playing Fields!

And despite fielding a smaller team than last year, the eight volunteer members of Bloxwich Carnival Committee were able to pull the rabbit out of the hat yet again, with a little help from their friends in local organisations and at Walsall Council.

A number of arena attractions, a wide range of stalls and exhibits, the brilliant local people and last but not least the traditional Pat Collins Fun Fair – made for a day of fun in the sun to remember!

The Bloxwich Telegraph’s editor Stuart Williams took the official photographs of the event, and we present a photo feature of selected pictures here.

Each picture can be expanded to full resolution for downloading by simply clicking on it with your mouse.

There were too many great photo opportunities to show here, so a full album of 182 images is available to view and download on Flickr, via the following link:
