STALYBRIDGE Festival Committee has finalised the dates for 2019’s summer carnival weekend.
The carnival will take place on Sunday, June 23 with a full weekend of events scheduled for Stalybridge.
The committee is planning a search for a star competition with heats to take place before the event.
The top 12 acts would then proceed to a final that will be staged in Armentieres Square on the Saturday.
The Huddersfield Canal Society will also be bringing over a flotilla of boats.
The committee recently held its annual carnival queen’s fundraiser at The New Stalybridge Labour Club.
Ten visiting queens attended and the event raised £111 towards the staging of the carnival.
