Category: Family Fun Date: Saturday, 15 June 2013 Luxury Dorset hotel guests will be able to enjoy a range of festivities at the annual Dorchester Carnival, which will be taking place on June 15th 2013. The event will see roads in the area closed off to make way for a colourful parade, with attendees encouraged to dress up in costume as their favourite cultural icons as they mingle with other carnival-goers and take in the sight of dozens of amazing floats. Live music will be performed in Borough Gardens throughout the day, with prizes to be handed out to revellers with the best costumes and floats. Though the main event takes place on Saturday, the carnival also incorporates a number of other activities, including the fun-filled charity pub race on Thursday June 13th, with a Party in the Park taking place the following day. With the Family Adventures Start Here deal at The Summer Lodge Hotel, guests can enjoy all the fun of the carnival while also taking part in activities organised by the hotel, including croquet, tennis, cycling and swimming sessions.
