One of the biggest floats this year with over 80 juniors and adults will be the Elland RLFC squads ranging from under 5s to open age. Elland RLFC have been going strong for over 40 years.

Elland Anchormen are back in the Carnival this year on their very own float and in the Carnival show. They are in terms of history, legends of Elland.

There will be films etc. played throughout the day (pictures house to confirm films etc.) and free liquid refreshments for children.

This is what Elland is all about and is a brilliant way to see a little bit of history on Carnival day.

The Elland Carnival is going to be bigger than ever this year. But with the Carnival growing they will need help on the day from some local Elland Volunteers. You could be part of a group or just want to help out. From setting up stalls, helping on the procession to cleaning up after the event. If you are interested then please can contact the organisers with your details via the Facebook page.
