THE big fun weekend of Party On Potton kicks off tomorrow (Friday) with four days of events.

There is a wonderful, action-packed schedule for people to enjoy including a carnival parade and more than 20 events on the Henry Smith playing field in Brook End.

The fun starts with a family disco where you can dance through the decades to music from the present day and back to the 1960s. There'll be a bar and barbecue.

On Saturday the carnival parade will head off through the town from noon with a street collection for Breast Cancer Care.
