2BR – News – Caribbean Carnival won’t reach city centre

It brings so much colour into Preston, but it’s not going to get to city centre this time.

Sadly the Caribbean Carnival is having to cut their procession short.

Organisers say it’s down to the huge costs to get the route through the city centre.

The clock is ticking for volunteers to find enough money to make sure they can put on the procession around Deepdale.

Traffic management costs are the biggest factor hitting those trying to make the cultural celebration come back to our streets.

Those behind the Carnival are hoping more businesses come forward to sponsor the event before the end of the month.
