Attend Ventnor Carnival on an Isle of Wight holiday

People planning Isle of Wight holidays this summer can time their trip to the island to coincide with the Ventnor Carnival.

The event takes place from August 8th 2010, with the main event, a parade through the town's streets, to be held on August 11th.

A further parade will take place on August 14th, so those taking Isle of Wight holidays in August will have plenty of opportunities to join in the fun.

Each year, a carnival queen is named, with Maddy Sellen taking the crown in 2009 and Nicola Barrow winning the prize the year before.

The 2010 celebration will be the 121st anniversary of the formation of the carnival, which is the second oldest of its kind in the country.

Those taking Isle of Wight holidays in Ventnor to attend the carnival will find plenty to do during their stay in the town, which has a small harbour and is well known for its wide range of specialist shops in the town centre.
