Councillor Sarah Conboy said this years event had been a fantastic success and paid tribute to the work of the Godmanchester Community Association and its team of volunteers. She said: The gala weekend wouldnt happen if not for the community association so it is thanks to their hard work that we had another brilliant event this year. It is a great occasion and the community came out to support all of the groups and organisations involved. As well as the traditional parade and floats, there was a packed schedule of live music, dancing, stalls, games, and activities to enjoy. There was even a bumper number of entries for a rubber duck race, which took place at the weir and was won, fittingly, by the duck numbered 001. The winning float, as selected by the carnival queen, had a Harry Potter theme, and the winning walkers were a group of book characters sponsored by Godmanchester business, Aladdins Cave.
