The date for the 2019 Colchester Carnival has been announced.
Colchester Fire Station have taken on the challenge of organising the ‘Colchester Carnival 2019’ and are pleased to be able to confirm the event details.
Colchester Carnival 2019 will take place on Saturday 14th September with a start time of 6.30pm. The carnival will take its usual route, starting from Circular Road North, then proceeding along Butt Road, Head Street and the High Street before finishing outside the Castle.
Organisers are keen to encourage as many groups and businesses to enter as possible, the more diverse the better, to ensure the Carnival is a spectacle of vibrancy. To further encourage excellent participation there will not be any charge for entering this year, regardless of type or size of your organisation.
A spokesperson has said: “We are delighted to say we already have the continued support of Colchester Carnival friends’, Hamblion Transport, who will be providing vehicles that participants with larger float ideas can utilise free of charge (subject to meeting Carnival criteria).”
“For full event details and how to apply to participate then please visit the
website www.colchestercarnival.co.uk . We will also be publishing regular
updates on our Facebook page ‘Colchester Carnival’. Please like and share this
Colchester Carnival is being restored by Colchester Fire Station to deliver a free
Community event for residents and visitors of the town, whilst displaying some
of the wonderful businesses, groups and clubs Colchester has to offer, and raise
money for charity whilst having fun. We look forward to receiving your support
whether it be participation, attending on the day, or sponsorship.
