The lucky three who will lead the parade at the annual Soham carnival have been chosen.

Princess Zara Rebelo of Martin Close is a seven-year-old pupil at The Weatheralls primary school. She will be supported by nine-year-old Fordham Road resident Faith Bird who goes to St Andrew’s primary school and nine-year-old Mia Jones who lives in Military Road, as her attendants.

The carnival on Bank Holiday Monday is the 61st edition of the town-wide event. The day will start with a four-hour heavy horse show at 9am and will be followed by a float parade featuring an entry from the town’s newest primary school The Shade.

Other attractions include a falconry display and BMX riders.
