Morecambe Carnival 2015 opens applications for floats

Float Entries for Morecambe Carnival 2015 (MC15) are now open. The application form is here on the event's official site.

Morecambe Carnival 2014 had a fantastic turnout, with an estimated 30,000 people turning out to watch it, and while the date of next year's event has yet to be confirmed, the Carnival's organisers are now planning for a bigger and better carnival experience in 2015.

The event attracted interest and support from schools, businesses, community groups, uniform groups, sports clubs who all got involved and represented in the carnival parade.

This year we’re looking for the most creative and entertaining float ideas, either traditional or something new and exciting," say the team. "Entries in MC14 came from all parts of the Morecambe Community and we’re looking for the same level of diversity and creativity – only more!

"The Morecambe Carnival is an fantastic opportunity to celebrate the variety of Morecambe’s community sprit."

The organisers urge anyone interested in taking part to take a look at our guidelines before submitting an entry.
  • A Float Application does not guarantee a float entry – successful applicants will be notified of their qualification
  • Upon a successful application there will be a £25 entry fee per float, £100 for businesses. Once accepted a place in the carnival parade is non-refundable
  • Safety is of paramount importance for all involved in MC15 so all floats must provide at the very least two volunteer stewards for safety reasons
  • Please be as descriptive as possible when telling the orgnaisers about your float. This will help with the selection processes
