This year's Southend-on-Sea Carnival boasts many top-drawer events, such as the Carnival Fair in Chalkwell Park, Westcliff-on-Sea, which will be welcoming visitors all week between 2pm and 10.30pm (not Sunday), and a mile-of-coins fund-raising fiesta starting today from outside Radio Rentals at 9am.

But the highlight of the week surely takes place on Friday with the Carnival All Sorts Dog Show in Priory Park. Sources reveal that the Dog In The Best Fancy Dress and the Most Attractive Dog and Child events are both wide open.
