An estimated 10,000 people lined the streets of Haughton Green and Denton for the annual Denton Carnival today (9th September).

As well as the ever-popular Carnival Parade, there were stalls, rides and free family entertainment in Victoria Park and on the Civic Square. The Carnival fun fair was located on Queen Street Car Park this year.
Here are a selection of photographs taken from the day’s festivities (some curtesy of local resident, Karen Fagan). A big thank you to the Carnival Organisers – and particularly Margaret and Andy Williams at Thackeray’s Books, and Cllr Margaret Downs, for all their hard work and dedication!
