Having entered and won the Bournemouth Carnival 2012, and in response to popular demand, we have resurrected after many years the Poole Carnival.
The Carnival will take place on the Bank Holiday Monday, 26th May 2014, with a colourful procession from Seaview end of Ashley Road in Parkstone, ending at a Charity Fair at Branksome Recreation Ground.
The procession will leave at 11.15am and proceed along Ashley Road towards Alder Road and down to Branksome Recreation Ground where there will be many stalls and entertainment to entertain all ages.
We are looking to bring the community of Poole together to join in this spectacular event and to make this Carnival a fun day for one and all.
Anyone wishing to participate in the Carnival, whether joining the competition to enter a colourful float, parade as a group or individual in the parade, or even host a stall on the Recreation Ground to raise vital funds or awareness can apply using the Application Forms downloadable from this website.
Maybe you would like to get more involved and help us organise the Carnival or assist with Marshalling the Procession, in which case you can see the various details from the appropriate page or send your enquiry through the Contact Page.
Thank you and lets make this a day to remember!
