HOLSWORTHY CARNIVAL is a fortnight today, so the reign of the 2016 Carnival Royalty is coming to an end. This is what they had to say about their experiences:
CARNIVAL QUEEN KATIE HOLLIS: I was thrilled to be given the  role of Carnival Queen 2016, and I have enjoyed every moment representing Holsworthy at the Carnivals we have attended. It has been an amazing opportunity, and I would like to thank, firstly, my wonderful attendants, Mia Polhill, Louise Shepherd and Rosie Toms as I could not have done it without them. I would also like to thank Ted England, Dave Jones and Tim Healy for all their help during the year. And finally, I would like to thank Holsworthy Lions for choosing me for the role. I wish the new Carnival Queen the best of luck for the upcoming year, and I hope she enjoys her reign as much as I did. I am looking forward to seeing everybody on 18 November to hand over my crown to the new Carnival Queen 2017.
FAIRY QUEEN LARA HILL: Thank you for letting me be the 2016 Fairy Queen. I have enjoyed all the Carnivals. I decided to pick the ‘winterland’ theme as I felt that it was a good choice because the weather was very cold. Thank you again, and best of luck to the 2017 Fairy Queen.
