We can’t tell you what they are otherwise they wouldn’t be surprises!
Only two people on the committee know the details of all the floats, making sure that there’s intense rivalry between groups to produce the most innovative and spectacular displays. The parade organisers collected the themes a year ago to ensure that there was no overlap, and now it’s only a day until you can see what everyone’s come up with!
We can tell you there’ll be music, there’ll be dancing, there’ll be walkers and drivers … but beyond that, you’ll have to come and see for yourself. Work out where you’re going to stand on the parade route now!
We’re currently sifting through the parade entry forms, working out the order, making sure that children aren’t walking behind horses, music isn’t too loud in neighbouring floats, the parade will carry on moving at a good pace. There are a good variety of themes! We can’t wait to see you all on the route on the fourteenth!
Part of our carnival tradition is the parade of floats, which wind their way around the village and end up at the carnival ground. Parades such as this are becoming increasingly rare but we think it completes our celebratory day!
We can’t run a parade though without closing the roads and that means we need your help – we need marshals to guide the floats, keep traffic off the roads, and direct people to the car parks.
Can you help? Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be eternally grateful!
We are already looking forward to our Carnival on 9 July, and a large part of that is the parade through the village. Having now chosen our theme – Cartoons and Comics – we’re taking bookings for floats, cars, marching bands, and even horses! If you want to know more, then please contact us on email@example.com.
