Article date - 14 August 2017

St Helens once again experienced a carnival-like atmosphere when it staged its free annual Summer Streets festival in the town centre on Saturday.

A large colourful street parade led by the brilliant Brazilian drumming troupe, Katumba, got this year’s event underway as visitors enjoyed a variety of street performances, interactive pavement art workshops and children's craft activities on display throughout the day.

Acts included the amazing M.A.D Stunt Team who performed stunts and tricks on mountain bikes; a fast-paced comedy show called ‘The Maniax’ which included plenty of shenanigans and gags; Epico the Dragon – the biggest, brightest and most beautiful creature ever seen – while the hugely popular double act, Granny Turismo, returned by popular demand to perform their hilarious shopping trolley dance.
