Wellington Carnival Committee has announced that Peppa Pig and her brother George will be attending Carnival Street Fair on Sunday 4th June.
Carnival Committee Secretary Louise Brierley said, “Last year we had Paw Patrol characters to entertain the children and we were delighted when a massive queue formed for photograph opportunities. Hopefully, Peppa Pig and George will be just as popular.
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the local groups and entertainers who will be performing throughout the day. We have a full programme of entertainment arranged for the High Street and South Street, as well as an open mic stage outside Rule 7. It is also rumoured that Elvis might be making a return visit to Wellington. A full schedule of entertainment will be published during the week leading up to the Street Fair.”
Louise also added, “We’re really pleased to have broken a record for Street Fair this year having bookings for over 80 stalls – the best ever! We’re hoping our local shops benefit from the extra footfall the event attracts.
“Funds raised from the event go towards insurance costs and prize money for Wellington Carnival which takes place on 30th September this year”.
