This year's carnival on Sunday and Monday August 29 and 30 will start at 9am and finish at 8.30pm, with the earlier start designed to ensure that all floats pass the judging point in time to before dusk.

A residents' information bulletin has been distributed to homes in the areas affected by Carnival.
