Here is my complete guide to this years Derby Carnival. Complete with detailed route map for the procession so you know where the best place to stand along the route to get a view of the dancers and their great costumes.

Keep an eye on this blog on Monday as I will hopefully be uploading a video of Derby Carnival 2010.

On Saturday 17th July 2010 the 24th Derby Caribbean Carnival Parade will take place.
The Procession starts at 1pm from Pear Tree Street and navigates slowly through Derby to the Market Place about 3pm. Shenell Gayle has been crowned Derby Caribbean Carnival Queen and will head the two-hour procession through the Market Place. On the procession, a 30-strong group of dancers from Derby West Indian Community Association will be joined by troupes from other cities, including London, Leicester, Nottingham, Bradford, Leeds and Birmingham.

On Sunday 18th July 2010, the Caribbean Carnival will descend upon Osmaston Park, where music acts will perform on stage. There will also be a fun fair, catering stalls selling Caribbean and European foods and arts and crafts stalls
