Car­ni­vale party starts early

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CARNIVALE - SAM SMALLBONE

THE wait is fi­nally over for the launch of this year’s Car­ni­vale.

The iconic Sugar Wharf will be trans­formed in a sea of colour to an­nounce this year’s Car­ni­vale pro­gram, the Face of Car­ni­vale and the win­ner of Song of Car­ni­vale on Satur­day night.

Car­ni­vale events man­ager Marine Cot­ton urges the com­mu­nity to sup­port the launch which fea­tures a great night of live en­ter­tain­ment.

“We want to give the com­mu­nity and the me­dia a great op­por­tu­nity to un­der­stand the pro­gram for this year so they can go away and talk about it to their friends be­cause word of mouth is our most pow­er­ful mar­ket­ing tool,” she said.

“We are su­per ex­cited about an­nounc­ing our Face of Car­ni­vale Am­bas­sadors, our Song of Car­ni­vale fi­nal­ist and we are de­lighted to have these win­ners help us mar­ket and rep­re­sent the amaz­ing events we have in this beau­ti­ful re­gion.”

The three cho­sen fi­nal­ists in this year’s Song of Car­ni­vale con­test will per­form their song for the as­sem­bled judges who will then se­lect and an­nounce the win­ner.

Fi­nal­ists se­lected from the Face of Car­ni­vale competition will be in­tro­duced to the au­di­ence and will par­tic­i­pate in a ques­tion and an­swer session with the judges.

The 2011 Face of Car­ni­vale will lead the Macrossan Street Pa­rade and fea­ture in me­dia pro­mo­tions for the fes­ti­val.

The Song of Car­ni­vale will also be used to pro­mote the fes­tiv­i­ties.

Af­ter the win­ners are pre­sented, DJ Nicky G will be spin­ning some tunes through­out the evening and there will be a bar avail­able for lo­cals to en­joy a few drinks un­der the stars.

The 2011 Car­ni­vale launch will take place the mag­i­cal Sugar Wharf in Port Dou­glas and will run from 6pm to 11pm on April 2.

Tick­ets cost $40 per per­son which in­cludes canapés and can be booked on the Car­ni­vale web­site on car­ni­ or by phon­ing 4084 0044.
