GET ready for a 32-hour party!
That’s the message from the people behind Huddersfield Carnival 2007.
They plan to turn the weekend of July 13 and 14 into a colourful celebration, including thousands of people.
The event is one of the most popular of the year in Huddersfield.
The exuberant and colourful proocession through the town centre draws thousands of people.
And the music and other attractions in Greenhead Park ensure a great fun-filled weekend.
Carnival kicks off on Friday, July 13, with the traditional Queen and King Show at Huddersfield Town Hall.
Groups from the various Carribbean communities in town get together in their exotic costumes to compete for the honour of fielding the Carnival Queen, heading the parade.
The following day, July 14, sees entertainment get under way in the town centre at 11.30am and from Greenhead Park from 12pm.
The procession itself is due to leave the Hudawi Centre in Great Northern Street at 1.30pm and will slowly make its way though the town centre - accompanied by lively bands and dancers - to the Park.
Many of the people involved have spent months working on their elaborate costumes.
And there have been workshops in Huddersfield to try and encourage more groups to take part with their own costumes.
The Carnival partying continues into the early hours of Sunday with the traditional Last Lap Dance at the Hudawi Centre.
The guest artists include Ajamu and Grenada Soca Monarch, along with DJ 45 and Skinhead.
