Thousands of revellers braved the elements this weekend to enjoy the 34th Abbots Langley Carnival.

Families waving union jacks lined the streets, to watch a parade of floats in a procession led by local bands and majorettes.

And ranked on their obedience and agility, the pets in the dog show proved to be popular once again.

David Abbott, facilities manager at Abbots Langley Parish Council said: “Everybody at the carnival really enjoyed themselves, it was a great day.

“Thousands turned out despite the downpour of rain and we were really happy with how well attended the festival and fair were.

“As always the dog show was very popular and pulled in a large crowd, as did the many stalls with different things on offer.”

Coinciding with the Queen’s 90th birthday, people wearing royal family masks were dotted all around the carnival and red, white and blue bunting decorated the village.

A funfair also kept people entertained as they flooded into Manor House Grounds and a bouncy castle was popular with the children.

Hundreds could be found visiting the stalls of local organisations and societies, and people took it in turn to play tennis with an Abbots Langley tennis coach.
