11:11am Friday 20th June 2014

MILFORD HAVEN Carnival will be one for the film fans this year, as Austin Powers, Audrey Hepburn and Lara Croft feature in an all-star Hollywood line-up.

Carnival organisers Milford Haven Round Table have pulled out all the stops for this year’s procession, which will include famous movie cars such as a DeLorean - as featured in ‘Back to the Future’ - a pink Cadillac, and a tank.

On Saturday, July 5, the parade will begin at Waterloo Square at 1pm, travelling down St Anne’s Road, Hamilton Terrace, Sandhurst Road and The Rath, before finishing up at Milford Haven Athletic FC grounds.

Local groups and businesses will battle it out for the £500 ‘best float’ prize, and music will be provided by the Milford Haven Town Band and Samba Doc as the precession weaves through the town.

In Pill Fields, younger audiences will be kept entertained by performers The Crazy Bears, face painting, circus demonstrations, local gymnastics displays and birds of prey.

There will also be numerous stalls selling local products, photo opportunities with the stars and cars, a fairground, and a live stunt show.

Chairman Dan Davies said: "The Round Table look forward to this year’s carnival. We believe that once again it will be a fun-filled weekend for all the family which will be an alcohol-free zone.”

"The overall theme and the entertainment that has been confirmed will surely add an extra exciting and unique dimension."

If you’re interested in creating a float there is still time to enter. All entrants will receive £100 towards float costs, as long as at least 15 people take part, and great cash prizes are on offer for the top three floats.
