This year’s Best Decorated Building/Shop Window Theme is “Book Titles & Characters”.   Let’s decorate the town with carnival colour and vibrancy.

Be as simple or creative as you like.  You perhaps may want to use this theme for a parade entry i.e. a favourite children’s classic with a favourite character or older classics, fantasy, fiction or fact based – its your choice. All entries most welcome.😃

Still needing an idea for your parade entry? Struggling for an idea? We want to encourage as many people to get involved, create an entry, dress up, experience and share a weekend of fun, smiles and wonderful community vibe.

2019 sees some important anniversaries. “One small step” – fill out an entry form and be a part of your community celebration!

July will be the 50th Anniversary of man landing on the moon on July 20th, 1969 – “That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.”   6th June 2019 marks the 75th anniversary of The D-Day Landings. The summer of ‘69 turns 50. On November 9, 2019 – 30th Anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall.

Looking forward to the Big Parade on Saturday, 27th July 2019.
