Introduction

Present day carnival across the world has its roots in an amazing range of nationalities, cultures, life styles and belief. Well-documented evidence of carnival exists in the form of celebrations, masquerades, songs and traditions of West African slaves, through Europe’s Romantic period of the 1600th century, to the post emancipation period of colonial Europe in the Caribbean. Carnival in Britain has it roots in the Caribbean. Like many things in life, Caribbean Carnival in Preston started somewhat spontaneously. In an attempt to remember the great carnival back home, West Indian immigrants organised a small procession through a few streets in Preston. They begged, bought and borrowed a host of materials, carried costumes and steel drums through some of the cobbled streets, in order to bring at least one day of sunshine and fantasy to Preston.

Route

The procession travels from Moor Park, down Deepdale Road and around the Deepdale area, onto North Road and back to Moor Park Avenue
