Thousands of people took advantage of the warm weather to flock to Braunstone Community Carnival in the city today. For the second year, the event was held in the grounds of Fullhurst Community College, in Imperial Avenue. The event, which attracted a lot of young families, included a sports festival area, the Streetvibe youth pod village, a football cage, DJ workshop, FIFA 13 competition and graffiti boards. There was also a wide range of stalls run by local charities, stage performances and refreshment vans. Angie Wright, of organisers b-inspired, said; "It's a different event which is attracting a lot of families and it's a very happy event." The event used to be held on Braunstone Park but was scaled down due to lack of funding and problems with excessive drinking. Angie said: "When it was held on the park people used to come from all over the city because it was a bigger event, but this is a much more local event." Kelly Jones, 30, of Braunstone, said: "It's my first time here, I think it's lovely and there's plenty for the kids to do." Liz Graves, 35, also of Braunstone, said: "This is more like a fete than a carnival, but the kids are enjoying it." Daughter Shannon said: "It's good because there are a lot of kids here enjoying what's going on."
