If you're from Wales, next month could present the perfect opportunity to don carnival fancy dress and make the most of the summer.

That's because Llanidloes is gearing up for its annual Llani Fancy Dress Street Party on Friday July 2nd, an event that promises to be lots of fun, the Cambrian News reports.

Now in its 40th year after being established by a former police sergeant, 1,337 people have already confirmed that they will be attending via the event's official Facebook page.

Attendees call it Wales' answer to Notting Hill Carnival, since it has welcomed fairgrounds, street entertainment and top DJs over the years.

"It promises to be the event of the year," the newspaper enthuses.

A clown costume could be perfect for joining in with the party, but being as there will be something of a fiesta atmosphere, why not go for something more exotic?

We'd love to see people in Parrot fancy dress to provide extra colour for the event!
