The 99th IRN-BRU Carnival was officially opened by six Glaswegian youngsters who have been appointed official ambassadors for Europe’s largest indoor fun fair.

Caleb and Blake Miller (8 & 7), Ellsie McGill (9), Daniel Kidd (11), Ryan Callan (5) and Kesiana Bajrami (13), all submitted mini films sharing their love for the Carnival and why they should be chosen as ambassadors.

The lucky six will now have unlimited, free access to the Carnival for them and three friends or family members in return for sharing their experience and top tips on the IRN-BRU Carnival’s social media channels.

Greg Cherry, Managing Director of QD Events, organiser of the event, said: “The IRN-BRU Carnival is one of Glasgow’s most iconic holiday events, so who better to open it than these six young Glaswegians. We received some amazing entries to our ambassador appeal and it was a tough decision but we loved the enthusiasm and fun-loving nature of our chosen six and can’t wait to see what exciting things they get up to.”
