FROM just after 11am, it began to rain and it didn’t stop all day but that did not dampen the enthusiasm of all those who took part in the Harlow Carnival.

From the VIP bus at the front to the final float which was Aladdin, it was a joy to see such a coming together of the Harlow community.

Our thirty five minute film of the event is below. As we have spent a few hours editing it, here are some of the highlights.

1. The energy coming from the floats with music: Harlow Hospital Radio, Harlow Steelband, Harlow Playhouse’s Aladdin.

4. The dead body on the Essex Police Cadets float.

6. The public who defied the rain to stand out and give the event their support.

7. The event went seamlessly which is testament to the work by all agencies concerned.

8. Great dance groups including Hip Hop Pop and Dance Fusion to name just two.
