This weekend would normally be Harborough Carnival weekend - but as we know, there is nothing normal about these times.

So as there is no carnival this weekend due to the pandemic, we wanted to publish a few pictures from past carnivals.

These photos from Andrew Carpenter include Leicester City player Tommy Wright opening the carnival, Jack and Vera Duckworth from Coronation Street and Star Wars actor David Prowse.

There is also a photo of the staff at the Harborough Mail back in 2004.

We hope you enjoy a trip down memory lane!
