Hundreds of Barrovians turned out in force to enjoy the weekend-long carnival festivities.

Barrow Carnival returned for another fun-filled weekend of parades, performances and fun fair rides.

Residents lined the streets to watch the Mardis-Gras style procession start from Duke Street along Abbey Road and finally ending in Barrow Park.

Dancers, bag-pipe players, steel-drum bands and more all took part in the afternoon parade, attracting a huge audience across the town.

Among those taking part was dance troupe, Dance Fusion, who had dozens of performers taking part.

Mum of one of the dancers, Stacey McAteer, thought the parade went 'amazingly well.'

She said: "It was really good to see all the girls out there, they'd all worked so hard.

"They all had so much fun and walked really well out there."

Barrow's Women's Rugby League team also took part in the procession.

Partaker, Jodie Litherland hopes their presence promotes women's sport.

She said: "We really want to promote women's rugby and hopefully attract a few more players.

"We're on our best behaviour because we have a big match tomorrow."

Walney resident, Sue McKenna, praised the 'lovely' parade procession.

She said: "It's been a very good turn out.

"It was lovely to see all the dancers and the sunshine is great too."
