The Lewis Carnival is back on Saturday 3rd August.

Carnival organisers had hoped to break with tradition and move the event later in August "but the unfortunate clash with the Piping World Championships meant we’d be down on pipe bands - which just would not be right!

"So we’re sticking with old faithful and hope to see as many of you there as possible.

"This year we welcome not only the Lewis Pipe Band, but also the Lewis & Harris Youth Pipe Band, and the St Andrews Caledonian Pipeband all the way from Tasmania on a tour of Scotland! 

"Please share, please get involved, please get in touch!

"If you want the parade to be bigger and better - be in it! D.R. Macleod lorries are available free for the day (phone them directly to book) or be creative and take part on foot, by car, whatever you can think of!

If you fancy a stall for your club, group, organisation - sign up quick!

Limited numbers available - Perceval Square stalls £30; food stands £50. Message or email to book.
