They are busy preparing for the fun day which takes place along the cliff top between Limekiln Lane and Sewerby on Sunday, August 7.

Last year’s carnival raised thousands of pounds for local charities and saw people visit in droves following the event’s enforced break due to the Covid restrictions.

The popular charity fundraiser hosted a variety of stalls along with a range of refreshments and lots of different activities.

There was also a huge classic cars display, a Punch and Judy show, and entertainment on the main stage hosted by Bridlington Gold Radio.

Peter Jay, one of the carnival organisers, said: “In addition to the usual catering and bar facilities, the stage entertainment will feature the ever popular Sticklebricks band while Bridlington Gold Radio will be broadcasting from the stage and the new roadshow trailer.

“The Red Admirals Majorettes will be performing and children will be entertained by Billy Biscuit with a Punch and Judy show.

“There will be a classic vehicle show, prize stalls and games, children’s rides, a licensed beer tent, and much more. There’s also plenty of parking (cost £3).

“This all points to a very entertaining day and, in addition to the giant car boot sale on the adjoining land, should provide something for the whole family.

“As always the Lions promise that after the costs of the event are calculated, all the profits will be used for charitable purposes.”
