Birchwood Carnival

Birchwood Carnival, an annual community event, took place this year on Sunday, 2nd June 2019.

Unfortunately, the weather was a bit mixed, with several heavy showers during the afternoon, however, this did not put a dampener on Carnival go'ers enjoying the acts and attractions on offer.

There were a number of free activities; a climbing wall, rodeo bull, gladiator joust, a very popular Punch and Judy show and Ranger Rob's Animal Experience, circus skills, balloon modelling etc as well as main arena shows from the Van Buren Magic and Illusion Shoe and Eagle Heights, Eagle and Vulture Display.
