Venetian Carnival extravaganza all set for tomorrow night
FINAL rehearsals are under way for tomorrow night's Venetian Carnival on the banks of the Clarence River in Grafton.

Organisers are crossing their fingers the wet weather stays away as there is no wet-weather venue booked as a back-up for the event.
The carnival starts at 6pm and finishes about 9pm.
Fireworks will start about 8.45pm.
The Venetian Carnival will be held at the river end of Prince St near Memorial Park.
