The carnival was a fundraising event where the parents of the four princesses had to raise money and the princess whose family raised the most money was crowned Queen. All four girls are wearing long dresses and holding flowers. The Queen has a crown on her head and wears a long cloak. Cups that were presented to each girl are placed at their feet. Carnival was held in the Inglewood Town Hall.
