FUN-SEEKING crowds flocked to Bakewell for the Peak District town’s annual carnival on Saturday.

The carnival, which is one of the biggest in the county, attracted as many people as ever and everyone was delighted with the number of floats, bands and all those who took part in the event’s famous procession.
