It's carnival time
Roll up, roll up, it's carnival time at Ongo.
On Wednesday 3 August, we are holding a free carnival in Scunthorpe and everyone is invited.
It starts at 11am and runs until 3.30pm at Burringham Road playing fields.
Last year over 700 people came along to join in the fun and we’d like to see even more this year.
We’ve organised bouncy castles, trampolines, soft play and stalls like a coconut shy and hook a duck.
There will also be demonstrations from local groups such as martial arts, majorettes and cheerleaders.
You will also be able to take part in a circus workshop, zorb footballing and arts & crafts.
There will be lots of information stalls too all about Ongo as well as from other local agencies including the emergency services.
Wendy Wolfe, Customer Engagement Manager at Ongo, said: “We have lots of fun activities planned for this year’s carnival and using feedback from people we try and make each event bigger and better than the last.
“We had over 700 people at last year’s carnival which was our biggest crowd yet and we’d like to break that record again.
“The carnival is free and is just one of the ways we are giving back to North Lincolnshire. It’s for all ages to enjoy and we hope to you see there.”
