The Tring Carnival is now just three days away – and thousands of people are expected to go to it.

The parade will begin outside of Bishop Wood School in Frogmore Street, Tring, before turning the corner onto the nearby High Street and going to Pound Meadow.

The parade begins at 11.30am and is due to have reached the park by noon.

And then there will be even more fun. The Tring Brewery bar will open and there will be food, a climbing wall, bungee trampoline, human gyroscope, a tug of war, dog show. and more. In total you can expect to find around 100 stalls and games

Heather Simms, who is helping organise the carnival on behalf of of Tring Together, said: “We usually draw between 3,000 and 4,000 people.

“The rain did not stop a great turn-out in 2013. We offer traditional fun for all the family, great live music, colourful displays and performances and more.

“Last year we had a great Tring Carnival: let’s make this year’s even better.”

And if the carnival itself wasn’t enough, tomorrow the Daniel Smith Blues Band will perform in Pound Meadow from 8pm.

Tickets cost £8 in advance, £10 on the door, or £5 if you’re a student. They can be bought from The Chilterns MS Centre – where all the proceeds will be going, Tring Brewery, and Almar (Tring). Email to learn more.

On Friday, Neil Harris’ School of Rock will play in the Pound Meadow marquee and on Sunday the park will host brass and blues music and barbecue from noon.

Tickets to the Sunday show cost £5 for adults and £2.50 for children and can be bought from Tring Brewery or by emailing
