2017 Procession Theme “AMERICANA”

The Carnival Procession leaves from Knowle Drive at 1:30pm arriving on the Green at 2:00pm to signal the start of the festivities.

The procession is great fun for everyone involved and a brilliant way to advertise and promote your organisation.

The Carnival will provide:

  • Contacts for local people and companies who can provide vehicles for floats
  • Example risk assessments to help you make sure you are running everything safely.

Non charitable organisations and car collectors are allowed to enter floats or vehicles into the parade too – do you know anyone who might like to take part? Perhaps a Zumba Group, local business, who would like to get involved with the carnival atmosphere.

This year’s theme is Americana and we think there is lots of scope for some really creative floats. Everything from 50’s style cafe’s to a bit of Grease Lightning.

Also don’t forget you might not need a float to ride on, you could decorate a car and walk alongside, or even just walk as a group in some fantastic costumes.

We want the 2017 procession to be bigger and better than ever!

Line up starts from 1.00pm in Knowle Drive, please ensure you have your own marshalls walking along side with any group/float that has young adults.  Your marshalls must be wearing a flourescent jacket
