Lambourn has a long tradition of holding a carnival procession on the Sunday of the August Bank Holiday Weekend. The streets are closed to traffic and the parade of floats and walking entries winds its way through the village. Many years ago each racing yard entered a float and there was great rivelary to win the cup for the best entry.
