Planned attractions include a Ferris wheel, fairground rides, food outlets, a climbing wall, an inflatable ‘village’, side shows and stalls.
But organiser Lionel Weston also wants to draw people’s attention to a more poignant element at the end of the day – the Lanterns of Light Parade, when people can pause for a moment to reflect and remember loved ones lost to cancer.
The Lanterns of Light Parade will take place after a brief ceremony of music and words at 10.15pm.

Lanterns will be available at the carnival to dedicate to loved ones lost or those still battling bravely.
