Save the date: Ongo Carnival is coming
Ongo Carnival is coming to town again this summer.
On Wednesday 8 August, we'll be hosting a free carnival in Scunthorpe and everyone is welcome.
Starting at 11am until 3pm, the event taking place at Manor Park, Burringham Road in Scunthorpe will be free of charge for all to attend.
Last year over 2,000 people enjoyed the event which was a record amount, and we're hoping for an even better turn out for 2018.
There will be bouncy castles, trampolines, soft play and stalls including a coconut shy and hook a duck. There will also be demonstrations from local groups such as Martial Arts, Ruby Twirl Stars, Cheerleading, Scunthorpe & District Pipe Band. You will also be able to take part in a circus workshop, donkey rides and the space hopper grandprix.
You’ll also be able to chat to our staff and visit their various information stands, as well as other local organisations including North Lincolnshire Council, North Lindsey College and Healthwatch.
Food vans will also be at the event where you can purchase food and drinks, or you could bring along your own picnic.
Wendy Wolfe, Customer Engagement Manager, said: “We can’t wait for the carnival this year. Last year we had such a great turnout and were really lucky with the weather, we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed for the same again this year.
“The carnival is free and is just one of the ways we are giving back to the people and communities of North Lincolnshire. It’s for all ages to enjoy and we hope to you see there.”
