Welcome to Poole Carnival Blog

Follow all the latest goings on right here in the lead up to the 2017 Poole Carnival taking place this year Sunday 6 August 2017

We have agreed to change from a motorised procession through Parkstone to  a smaller event as part of the Charity Fair at Branksome Recreaton Ground to include fancy dress, walking trolleys, prams, pushchairs and much more. We are just playing around with the finer particulars but believe this will encourage more people to enter either as a solo entry or in groups as this will cost very little if anything to enter.

Stalls are coming in fast so if you want a stall fill out your application form and send it off before you are too late. There will be the popular Coles Funfair included this year with all your favourite rides.

We are currently pushing time to include the popular Flower Show as we are unable to get a cheap marquee to hold this in or any sponsorship to cover the current price for one. If you are able to help with this or interested in any of our sponsorship packages contact me urgently.

We are also looking for people who want to be included in our entertainment program and looking to switch between small groups or singers on the pavilion balcony and larger displays and groups within the arena. Please note though we have NO budget to pay people for their services but offer full support and options to promote you.

Finally the committee have discussed and agreed that the charity we will be supporting this year and welcome on board (literally) will be the Parkstone Sea Cadets who will be around on the day so please help us to help them.

Thank you!
