The Wiltshire Gazette and Herald: Calne Scouts have fun at last year's event Calne Scouts have fun at last year's event

Beach Terrace in Calne will be transformed into a golden beach for this year's summer festival and carnival on Saturday.

There will also be free donkey rides will be on offer in Church Street, and a surf simulator will provide some Hawaiian action in the New Market Place.

Organisers are promising that the event will be bigger and better this year with more floats and walking entrants in the procession and a huge array of stalls and activities.

The Green will be turned into a circus for the day as children’s workshops take place from 11.30am.

Children are invited to come along and try their luck at stilt-walking, juggling and generally clowning about.

Organiser Tracy Howell said: "We just want everyone from the town and villages to come along, get involved and be part of this exciting annual event.

"The procession starts at 4.30pm and promises to be a huge spectacle.”

The Royal Armed Forces parade will also be part of the day, with veterans marching at 2pm from The Green down to Beach Terrace where the flag will be raised.

All veterans and serving members are encouraged to come along and take part.

At 5.30pm the Green will be turned into a 'Tea and Tunes' venue; local musicians are invited to come along for an acoustic open-mic session until 8pm.
