Buckley carnival"

Brunswick Road, Buckley




The carnival took place for many years until a few years ago. I think it took place after the jubilee and it had quite a few different floats. It stopped due to lack of organisers. In the picture,the pearly king, Mr Eric Hughes (or Eric the Post), carries a bucket in which to collect donations for local charities.
