THE SEARCH is on for Llanfair Caereinion’s next Carnival Queen.

The Llanfair Caereinion Carnival Committee is looking for a “special young lady” aged 11 years or older who has always loved the event and would relish the chance to be at the forefront of the procession.

The new Queen will get £50 towards her dress and can choose the theme, colour and decorations for the royal float.

This year’s carnival will be held on Saturday, June 16, and promises to be a great day out for the whole family with lots of colourful floats, fun races, live music, food stalls, café, bar Powys Dance, Caereinion Gymnastics Club, Nerf Battle Zone and much more to see and do.

Committee member Sam Webster said: “We are looking for that someone special to participate in our prestigious event. Becoming the Carnival Queen provides individuals with an excellent opportunity to get more involved with their community and to gain individual life experiences.”

The deadline to apply is Monday, May 7. For more information, please see the ‘Llanfair Caereinion Carnival’ Facebook page or telephone Sam on 01938 810039.
