The Carnival is Coming To Colchester!

he Colchester Carnival!

The Carnival is coming to Colchester this July, bringing a unique brand of fiesta spirit to our Town Centre streets! Saturday the 19th will see the more vibrant side of the Colchester community come alive, with everyone invited to get involved and celebrate summer!

The Carnival has been a huge success over the years and this time around has been given the theme ‘The Magic of the Movies’, with people from across the town invited to join in, bring a float and just generally share the pageant sprit.

Valcore’s very own Bert will be taking part this year too, by entering the Mascot Games. This will be a challenging competition that pits some of the most recognisable town mascots against one another in various events, to see who is crowned King. Competing alongside Bert will be Mr and Mrs Pin, from the Tenpin Bowling Alley, Sloppy Joe, Sonny bear from Colchester Zoo and many more.

Despite this array of talented athletes against him, Bert, and all of us here at Valcore, are confident of his chances and will be there to cheer him on! Bert’s trainer and Director of Valcore, Brett Went, is part of the team behind this year’s Carnival and he is looking forward not just to a lively, energetic procession, but also to seeing Bert step up and bring home the trophy for Valcore!

The Carnival itself will be split between a Family Fun Day in the Castle Park and a Procession that runs from one end of the town through to the other. The Castle Park events start at 11am and finish at 8pm and will include local bands and choirs performing in the Arena, and kid’s rides and storytelling in the Children’s Area. The Procession will begin at 3pm and travel from Abbey Fields, up Butt Road, down the High Street and end at Castle Park.

The whole event is looking to be one that brings our community together, a day where we can all enjoy some Carnival spirit. So head on down, cheer the floats and when it comes time for the Mascot Games, make sure you get behind Bert and back him and Valcore to victory!
