Ten years ago ... Skegness Carnival 2009 (IN PICTURES)

The sand sculpture contest was almost ruined by rain, but luckily it held off long enough for the entries to be judged.

Here we have a selection of photographs from Skegness Carnival of 2009.

The carnival was lucky with the weather on the whole, and attracted thousands of visitors to the activities which were taking place each day throughout the town.

Attractions included a parade, a sand sculpture contest, an art exhibition, an extreme sports demonstration at the X Site skate park, and a charity fishing match at Wolla Bank.
