Great Yarmouth Arts Festival
ORGANISERS of the Great Yarmouth Arts Festival are calling on local community groups to take part in this year's Carnival parade this summer.
The non-vehicular parade will be part of the Great Yarmouth Arts Festival which will take place this September from September, 21 - 30.
A diverse range of groups will have the opportunity to join in with and showcase their own traditional and colourful carnival costumes and props.
This year's parade will start near the seafront in Anchor Gardens and weave it's way through the town via Regent Road, Market Place, King Street and finish in St George's Park where there will be a grand finale where each group/participant will be able to showcase their costumes, dance routine or display for everyone to enjoy.
Music will be provided by Dixie Mix Jazz Band and local radio station Harbour Radio.
"We want to help communities across the borough to be part of this vibrant and exciting to celebrate their involvement.
We also have many carnival costumes that people can borrow for the day and join us as an individual or as a family"
Costumes would, however, need to be booked before the event.
