Burnham Carnival 2015

On Saturday 11th July 2015, the annual Burnham Carnival was held in Burnham Park. The carnival theme this year was "French Connection". The parade, organized by Lion Phil and marshaled by Lions Brigid and Iain, went from the front of Burnham Park Hall, into the park and around the arena, finishing in the arena. Our Lady of Peace Combined School was the parade winner. The Lions held a tombola and membership drive, which went very well.
