ELVIS will be making a welcome return to Wellington this Sunday for the annual Wellington Carnival Street Fair.

Carnival chair Dave Rylatt, said: "All the preparation work to arrange this event is coming together now, and we look forward to providing the town with another spectacular event.

"We very much rely on the people in and around Wellington to support the event, without them the event could not go ahead.

"Last year's event was very successful, we had a number of stall holders on the day wanting to book for this years’ event, we weren’t quite ready for that.”

Both the High Street, and South Street in the town centre will be closed to traffic on Sunday June 5 from 6am- 6pm to allow the annual Wellington Carnival Street Fair to take place.

The organisers would like to request that no vehicles are left in South Street, or High Street overnight on June 4.

The event is to help fundraise the Wellington Carnival in September.

Vice-secretary Dawn Odgers, said: "We are honoured that this years’ event will be opened by Rebecca Pow, our local Member of Parliament, followed by Wellington Majorettes first display of the year.

"We are also very excited that we have two characters from Paw Patrol, they will be arriving in the High Street at 10.30am and will be available for photographs."

The event will also provide an opportunity for those interested to talk to the carnival committee about our search for Wellington Royalty to represent the town this year.

Applications for anyone interested close on Saturday June 18, with a pageant being run on Sunday, June 26.

There will be plenty going on throughout the day, including a display from the Wellington Majorettes, the Wiveliscombe Wind Band, Bollywood Dancers, and Elvis.

Wellington Baptist Church will again be providing entertainment outside the church and there will be tea and cake from 10am-2pm.

There will also be an open mic outside Rule 7 from 10am-12noon.
