If there is one day in the year that you can predict wet weather it is Carnival day and at 10.45 right on cue it started to rain. Outside the Royal Oak as hundreds huddled under brollys and struggled with packer macs the Breaston Highlanders Band simply ignored the wet. They are obviously made of sterner stuff.

The Road Parade sponsored by ESP Cars set of from their assembly point at Sheet Store Industrial Estate at 11am. They turned right at the station and continued along Tamworth Road where they were joined by the many walking parties who were assembled on the Royal Oak car park.
