Subject: RE: Origins: Fakenham Fair
Failsworth Lancashire had a 'carnival' on August 23rd 1924. It seems to have been a parade as described by "Guest, Eliza", rather than a funfair.

I remember Oldham carnival as a parade in the 1960's.

So a usage of the world more like the European religious processions.
