Windmill floats, fancy dress and huge crowds attended the Ipswich carnival procession in 1984

We took a march back down the Ipswich highstreet in 1984 for the Ipswich carnival procession.
Hundreds of people gathered in the streets of the Ipswich town centre during the summer to watch the fabulous floats go by.
The groups of people on the floats smiled and waved at the crowds as they went past, dressed in a variety of different costumes.
One float had a fully constructed windmill on the back, which made quite the spectacle.
Three people dressed in fur hats and skirts rode a tandem in the procession.
A variety of young and old joined in the carnival celebrations.
