FACE PAINTING AT THE TORCHLIGHT STREET PARTY

Founded in 1970, Kendal Torchlight Carnival weekend attracts around 30,000 people to Kendal each year.

The Carnival Procession and Street Party celebrate the traditions, creativity, diversity and vision of local people, as they celebrate all that makes a place and its communities great.  The Carnival sees around 1800 local and visiting ‘processionists’ from schools, local businesses, voluntary and community groups.

The Carnival of motorised or carried decorated ‘floats’ winds their way through the streets of Kendal creating an extravaganza of weird and wonderful contraptions, masks and costumes, dancers, musicians and artists.
