Winton Carnival Is Back For 2016!
Last year marked the 10th year of Winton Carnival and the bar was well and truly raised with a stunning turn out! 2016 has a lot to live up to, but we recon we can put on an even better show this year.
Winton Carnival has always been a non-profit event run by volunteers from the local community and we can certainly say that they have done us proud for the last 10 years. Over 7,000 people join in the fun at Winton carnival so make sure you’re one of them. Whether you sign up as a volunteer or marshal, enter a float in the parade or just come along and watch, make sure you do your bit for the community.
What to Expect?
This year’s parade will be held on Saturday 25th June with hundreds of participants on float and foot playing music, dancing and generally having a great time. The procession kicks off between 10:45am and 11am moving down Wimborne Road, through Cardigan Road and Maxwell Road, ending at Winton Recreational Grounds. The fun doesn’t stop there though, as waiting for them will be fun fair rides, live music and stalls far and wide![caption id="attachment_3864" align="aligncenter" width="700"] Here is our very own mascot Lenny enjoying Winton Carnival![/caption]
What To Wear?
If you are entering the procession then you are going to need some fancy dress! Whether you’re looking for a full on costume or just some extras to complete your look, Hollywood can help! We have a huge range of face and body paints available for any design you can come up with and even some handy kits too. Looking for a wig? No problem! We have just about any colour or style you could want. We also have a stunning selection of masks and costumes to suit any budget so be sure to pop in and see us! Speaking of pop... Do you need some balloons for your float? We have balloons and decorations galore, especially at our Castle Lane West branch which is just at the end of Winton. Handy!
