Family Fun Day set to kick off May Racing Carnival at Warwick Racecourse

A FAMILY fun day kicks off the return of the Warwick May Racing Carnival at the town’s racecourse for its second year.

A seven race card starting at 1.30pm will entertain crowds with gates opening at 11.30am, children aged 17 and under go free.

The inaugural May Racing Carnival – which took place last year – attracted a big increase in attendances across the three racedays, and Warwick Racecourse is hoping for more of the same.

General Manager Andre Klein said: “Following last year’s incredibly successful Warwick May Racing Carnival we knew we had to bring it back again for 2017.

“Warwick Racecourse attracted a record number of racegoers in 2016 and without doubt the launch of the Warwick May Racing Carnival was a contributing factor to this success.

“We have made sure that these events appeal to a wide range of people, giving everyone an opportunity to enjoy a day out here and sample the brilliant race day experience we offer at the racecourse.

“The team has worked hard to organise some great entertainment for the the Kids Carnival Day, which should be a great family occasion.”

The Kids Carnival Day on Bank Holiday Monday (May 1) will feature a raft of family focused entertainment and activities throughout the day.

Free entertainment will include pony rides, a bungee run, carnival slide, bouncy castle, horse simulator, sumo suits, total wipeout, face painting, along with a popular mascot race.

The May Day raceday will be followed by the Think Pink Ladies Night (Saturday, May 13) and the Proudly Warwick Celebration Day (Thursday, May 25).
