It’s Carnival Season

Although Ambergate Carnival is not exactly a ‘Thing I Make’ I certainly played a part in raising the funds and organising it last year. This year I am Chairman, so feel even more responsible for making it be a good day!

Last year we ran Parade Workshops and Dance Sessions, the School Painted a Mural, we had the Digger Dancers performing. It was a great, and busy, few weeks. It’s a free event that everyone is welcome to attend and we try and cram in as much fun and entertainment as possible.

It’s not long until Carnival Day 2009 so if you want to find out more of what we are up to have a look at out website www.ambergatecarnival.org.uk.

It’s a surprising amount of work putting together an event like this. Only this morning I have been talking to the school kids about choosing the Carnival King and Queen, delivering the umbrellas for the weather themed parade, booking some cheerleaders and deciding on the categories for the fun pet show!

If you live in the area try and make it down to see us on the 11th of July, I will post some pictures of Carnival 2009 and related shenanigans soon.
