Mike:Yes, I’d like to. Some of my friends are going, but I

have a problem...my favourite football team are playing

on Saturday night and I’d like to go and see them play.

But I love going to the parade so I don’t really want to

miss it. Oh, I can’t decide what to do!

Claire:Well what time does the football start? Could

you go to watch it after the carnival parade?

Mike: Maybe.The football starts at eight and it will take

me half an hour to get to the stadium. It depends really

on when the carnival parade begins, and I definitely want

to see the fireworks.

Claire: The main parade actually starts at half past five

but I’m going at six to meet some people from school

and watch the fireworks. Come with us if you want to

and then afterwards you can go to watch the football.

costume? People normally dress up for carnival don’t

they? I can’t wear a big costume to the carnival if I’m

going to the football straight after!

why don’t you just wear a mask. That way when you go

meet you to watch the fireworks on Saturday.
