STOURBRIDGE Carnival brought sunshine and fun to the streets of the town centre last weekend, as the event returned for the 32nd year.

The carnival returned on Sunday July 7, with thousands of people taking to the town's streets to enjoy music, food and entertainment.

Chairman of the carnival, David Harcourt, said it was wonderful to see so many people in the centre having fun.

He said: "The was highlight was seeing all the people coming into the town and enjoying a nice day out that is costing them nothing."

There were celebrations all round, as six-year-old Isla Shaw-Miller won Miss Rosebud, while Elena Hope, aged 10-years-old, was crowned the Carnival Princess for 2019.

The Mayor of Dudley, Councillor David Stanley and Consort Councillor Anne Millward, judged the parade line-up.

Theatre group Side By Side were judged best in the parade, followed by runners-up St Thomas Church Cubs and Fair Trade.

Carnival-goers were treated to stalls in the High Street, music in Coventry Street and a display of classic vehicles.

Stourbridge Carnival will return in 2020.
