Street pa­rade given new mean­ing

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - GROOVE -

AS PREPA­RA­TIONS for Car­ni­vale 2013 take shape, the call has gone out for the colour­ful and quirky to put their think­ing caps on to take part in the street pa­rade.

Or­gan­is­ers are hop­ing this year will see a record num­ber of floats, af­ter more than 40 last year had the large crowd cheer­ing.

The theme for this year’s pa­rade is ‘‘Car­ni­vale, what does it mean to you?’’

It is hoped such a gen­eral theme will pro­duce a great di­ver­sity of floats, with the en­trants’ imag­i­na­tions the only fac­tor.

Three prizes will be on of­fer, with $1000 be­ing awarded to the best over­all float, $250 for the best com­mu­nity float, and $250 for the best cor­po­rate float. Whether you’re a busi­ness, a com­mu­nity group, recre­ational group or in­di­vid­ual, now is the time to start plan­ning. Reg­is­tra­tion at www.car­ni­vale.com.au. En­tries close in eary May.
