The dazzling colours of the Carnival brought Preston to life

Preston came alive on Sunday 24th March 2009 as the city bathed in sunshine and danced to the rhythms of the Caribbean.

Dancers packed the streets through the centre of the city and local photographers were out in force to capture Preston’s Caribbean Carnival.

The image above is one of a set by Paul Melling that really captures the faces of those involved in the event, the looks of excitement, passion and excitement.

Neil Hickson was also out snapping capturing the scenes as the parade came through the city and then down into Avenham Park.

Vinny managed to get some great shots of the Carnival in actions as it moved along the streets and the reactions of people watching as it passed.

The event showcased how well Preston can hold events and brought people out onto the streets to celebrate, and made use of two great public spaces in Moor Park and Avenham Park.
