Ambassadors to replace ‘royalty’ at Tadcaster Carnival
TADCASTER Carnival is replacing its traditional queen with Carnival Ambassadors to reward local schoolchildren for their good work.
The carnival was revived last year and was a huge success, despite torrential rain, and it has now been brought back for good.
This year’s event takes place on Sunday, July 28, beginning with a parade through the town on the theme of film and television.
Kirsty Perkins, carnival committee secretary, said: “The ambassadors are all children from each of the schools in Tadcaster, chosen by their teachers to represent the carnival because of the good work they’ve either done at school, in the community, in sports or fundraising – basically all round good eggs.
“The carnival is about bringing a community together to celebrate the great things we have in the town and the ambassadors are there to represent this.
“They will lead the parade all wearing sashes and will officially open the carnival on stage with the Mayor. Bromets solicitors have sponsored the ambassadors and will give each of them a prize for their good efforts.
“All of the children are very excited to have been chosen and all are looking forward to taking part.”
Kirsty said some “amazing” floats were being built for the parade, which would feature more than 25 floats.
“The competition has really heated up from last year, with some businesses going all out to win this year!”
She said the parade would end at the Magnet Sports and Social Club, where the afternoon events would kick off with live music from a local group, up and coming York band Littlemores and Copmanthorpe band The Forenzics, and there would be arena events, stalls and a fairground.
She said the evening would end with music from York party band Huge and a Robbie Williams tribute act, and a spectacular firework display.
