YOUNGSTERS from Scholes Junior and Infant School provided the highlights of the day for villagers as their annual carnival got underway.
As in previous years, the event kicked off with the carnival King and Queen, who this year, were Year 6 pupils Alex Jones and Ashleigh Saville.
The procession through the village was led by Hade Edge Band, as the King Queen, knights and attendants followed, riding in style on the first float, with children in fancy dress taking pride of place on the second.
The event is organised by the Friends of Scholes School (FoSS).
There aim is to help FoSS raise much-needed funds to support the school, and to create a social event for the whole village.
Alison Dewhirst, one of the organisers and member of FoSS, said: “It was a fantastic turnout, and luckily the rain managed to hold off for us.
“Once again the whole village got behind the carnival and made for a brilliant day.
“It was a particularly special event this year as it was 100 years since the foundation stone of the school was built. Next year will be even bigger as it will be our centenary year since the school first opened.”
Other activities throughout the day included, may pole dancing, country dancing, raffles and tombolas.
