Wednesday, 25 April 2012
2012 Bere Alston Carnival Celebrations 5th - 12th May Not just the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, but the many other anniversaries this year marks. All of which reflects in the theme of “Special Events”.
The festivities kick off with the Carnival Parade on Saturday May 5th. All entries are asked to assemble at the recreation field at 1.15pm for judging at 1.30pm. The procession will leave the field at 2.30pm led by “The Rubber Band” and Carnival Queen Hayley Porter with attendants Grace Dent and Katie Carr. A special part of this year’s parade includes a Queens parade featuring the many people who have represented the parish as carnival queen over the years. The longest standing queen is Eileen Hocking who unfortunately is unable to join us due to ill health but who represented us in 1946. The procession follows the local bus route and includes the Jacket bus as part of the event. Following the parade all who participate are invited to join in a tea party at the Parish Hall where the trophies and money prizes will be presented.
