The official Morecambe Carnival Parade Theme for 2019 is “Flower Power”.
“Flower Power” follows the 2018 Environmental Project “Trees and Bees”, which raised awareness of the plight of bee populations, the critical importance of woodlands to the environment and also raised funds to plant more than 2000 trees in woodlands in the Morecambe district.
The theme has been inspired by the Eden Project, which plans to open Eden Project North in Morecambe in 2022 and MC19’s own Environmental Project ‘Wildflowers and Hedgerows’. Eden will be working with the Morecambe Carnival and our other environmental partners on sustainability and will be offering creative ideas for the event.
Dozens of entries of all shapes and sizes from all corners of the Morecambe community – including schools, businesses, clubs, societies and sports teams – are expected to join the parade.
They will take to Morecambe Promenade on Sunday August 11th to not only celebrate the parade theme but also the town itself. Each entry will be competing for one of the much sought-after carnival cups, which will be presented live on the Main Stage. Entries are open via the carnival website www.morecambecarnival.org/parade.
The Morecambe Carnival is more than just a party on the promenade, it’s a shout out to the rest of the UK that draws attention and taps into the huge potential of the town, showcasing it far and wide. Part of the volunteer organisers’ vision is to ensure that the town has a bright future and part of that future needs to be green.
The Morecambe Carnival remains a free event, with entertainment, music, attractions and performances for all the family all weekend.
The MC19 Team and our other supporters and sponsors look forward to welcoming everyone to celebrate Morecambe again this summer! We’ll see you on Morecambe Promenade on Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th August 2019.
