The Lewis Carnival Committee is calling on all businesses, charities, organisations and groups to get thinking about float ideas for this year's Lewis Carnival.

Every year, the Lewis Carnival Committee's volunteers work tirelessly to make sure that the Carnival happens, organising games, stalls and activities to raise money for local charities. 

"The one part that is out of the committee's hands is the procession - and that's the part people look forward to the most!" committee member Victoria Silver told "We really need as many people as possible to enter a float - whether it's in the form of a DR lorry, a car, or just walking in costume. Everyone is welcome!" 

And remember, DR Macleod's will lend you the lorry FOR FREE! 

It's time to get your thinking caps on, and prepare for the Lewis Carnival this summer.
