Thanks are due to the community groups contributing to the Camberley Carnival Parade on Saturday 17th June, who made the event an enjoyable spectacle.
Camberley’s Sikh Association, and Nepalese [Gurkha] Society, plus the young gymnasts, all who followed the oompah music of the Sandhurst Silver Band made for a splendid spectacle. These such events benefit from good weather, and boy, wasn’t it a lovely sunny day on Saturday.
I noticed that the energetic Bhangra dancers of the Camberley Sikh Association were running out of puff when reaching Pembroke Broadway, though as they reached Park Street they found renewed energy.
Your truly captured the parade on video.
