Otley Carnival is back!

18th June 2022
With no possibility of a parade since 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Otley's 40th Carnival promised to be an exciting occasion and it didn't disappoint. Friends of Westgate had been hard at work, turning Connie's winning 'Westgate Weather' theme into a reality, designing costumes and volunteering to help the children make them in school. The day finally arrived, bringing warm weather and blue skies and a phenomenal turnout across the town, as crowds gathered to watch the parade wend its way through Otley. Huge thanks to Sarah Dobson, her band of volunteers and the Friends of Westgate for making it such an enjoyable day for the children. It was lovely to have the school community back together like this, and being a part of our town community too.
