A VARIETY of activities including a birds of prey display, a Harley Davidson motorcycle parade, a climbing wall and bouncy castles came together on Sunday to make the annual Bridlington Lions Carnival a great success.

The annual carnival, held at the cliff top between Limekiln Lane and Sewerby on Sunday, this year started early with a car boot sale with the thousands of visitors then enjoying fairground rides and entertainment.

This year the crowds were entertained by a birds of prey display, a performance by the Children of the Mist pipe band, and Bridlington Girls Choir, as well as ferret racing.

New this year was a flight simulator, a pig racing stall, zorb balls, micro cars and classic cars - as well as the impressive sight and sound of around 40 Harley Davidson motorcycles parading along the cliff top.

“This year the weather has been very kind to us,” said Simon Gregson of Bridlington Lions.

Even the sun made an appearance which makes a huge change on previous years and at least the rain was very brief and did not affect the carnival and car boot.”

The next Bridlington Lions event is the car boot sale on Bank Holiday Sunday, August 26 on the cliff tops between Bridlington and Sewerby starting at 7am.

This year’s annual bonfire and firework display is now on Saturday November 3.
