Community Carnival

Our fantastic SIRF19 Community Carnival took place on Saturday 3 August and celebrated all that is unique and wonderous about our beautiful towns. Our Tales of the Tees Valley theme brought together more than 40 community groups for a spectacular parade and highlights of SIRF19.

The Carnival began with a parade of hundreds of performers from local schools and community groups, many dressed in colourful costumes, celebrating the Tees Valley. 

Thousands of people lined the route for the vibrant parade as the procession passed along Stockton High Street leading to Stockton Riverside where participants and visitors enjoyed an afternoon of free live music, family entertainment and workshops following the parade.
