2016 FANCY DRESS COMPETITION

Fancy dress parade – come and join us!

With the Spring Bank holiday approaching and with it the Garstang Children’s Festival, the committee are working hard to make sure that the popularity of the event remains assured.

One troublesome item on the committee’s agenda is the urge to get more adults and children to join the evening parade in the fancy dress. Over many years of the festival, the evening’s fancy dress parade has drawn large crowds who enjoy watching the humour the fancy dress produces.

One recalls the Richardson family who have supported and taken part in the event for decades. One also recalls other supporting stalwarts of bygone days, namely Nurse Ward and her friend, Tom Horn and friends, Garstang Youth Club, Young Farmers and many others who have joined in the fun Parade.   It would be very remiss of me not to mention two of the present annual stalwarts, namely Andy Stewart along with Ros Ashworth and her gang, who still take part on a regular basis. We are grateful for their continued support and the laughter that they bring to the day.

The key message that the committee would like to convey is that we are hoping to stir up a resurgence of fancy dress participants in this year’s event. So, why not get together with friends and add to the entertainment? You will have great fun and possibly even win a prize at the same time!

Thank you

Eddie Livesey.
