With a stellar line-up of entertainment, Bushy’s running the bar and a beer garden created by the Council’s parks team the Douglas Carnival after party in the Bottleneck car park looks set to attract the crowds long after the floats have floated past.

The Carnival is from 7pm but even before then there’ll be live music throughout the afternoon from Soundcheck ahead of the main event and after party which will feature an acoustic set from 3 Million, Looney and the Vikings who wowed the crowds long into the night last year, and Buncha Skankers headlining and closing the show.

Town centre manager Michelle O’Malley said: ‘We said this year’s Carnival would be bigger and better…and it certainly will be. The after party will make sure that this is a carnival that just keeps on giving. We’ve had a fantastic response with businesses, community groups and charities really keen to be part of what will be the event of the year, not just for Douglas but for the whole Island.’

Entries and sponsorship opportunities are still welcomed.
