Planning a Float for the Carnival Parade?

We’re really hoping many of you have already caught the Tidza Wakes ‘bug’ and are planning house or street decorations, fancy dress costume or the theme of your float for the Carnival Parade! Our aim is to make Wakes enjoyable and fun but also safe for everyone involved or spectating, particularly the Carnival Parade on Saturday 30th June which relies on brightly decorated floats, fancy dress costumes, musical accompaniment and Bands to give it the WOW factor. But here comes the important bit…….with growing interest from people entering floats in the Carnival, the Committee needs everyone entering a float to register before 5 pm on Friday 29th June. Then we can pre-plan the procession, reduce waiting and make sure the procession showcases both floats and Bands. It may not be possible to include floats in the Parade that have not registered in advance.
When you register we will need basic details such as the type of vehicle, the theme, whether it will have music playing on the float and insurance. We cannot insure vehicle owners against a motor accident that occurs during the Parade, whilst a motor accident is an unlikely event and our insurance covers all other types of accidents or damage, we need you to inform your vehicle insurer that you intend to use the vehicle as a float so you have the correct cover on Carnival Day. If this is unwelcome news, please, please DON’T abandon your plans but DO get in contact with the Committee to discuss your concerns, we can’t solve every issue but would like the opportunity to try! To register your float, please contact
Andrew on andrew@tideswellwakes.info or see any member of the team before 5 pm on Friday 29th June.
