COLOUR, SMILES AND SUNSHINE SUMMARISED THE
21ST BALINGUP MEDIEVAL CARNIVALE
A record crowd turned up to immerse themselves in medieval merriment and enjoy a weekend full of fun, fighting and food. There where too many highlights to mention here but fighting and burning drew the crowds and applause. The fighting knights revelled in the new fighting arena which enhanced the spectacle and allowed everyone a great view. A massive crowd watched the burning of the dragon on the Saturday night crackling to the beat of the Wasamba drummers.
An amazing group of volunteers driven by a passion for the town of Balingup make this unique carnivale a success every year and 2017 was the best yet. It was a fitting reward for the effort put in. But there's no rest for the motivated with a number of ideas on the cards for next year. If you didn't make it this year, bookmark the 25th and 26th of August 2018 to step back in time for the 22nd Balingup Medieval Carnivale.
