Time to celebrate six years!
Seven years ago I had a vision. A vision of Eastbourne wonderful community groups and associations marching down the seafront. Of generations of visitors and residents enjoying the spectacle as thousands march past.
Colourful floats, brilliant bands, schools, clubs, dancers, entertainers all joining in the Carnival fun.
Restaurants, cafes, bars, all packed with residents and visitors enjoying the Carnival atmosphere. .
That was six years ago, and I'm proud that after a year of planning, each of our six Carnivals, has grown from strength to strength.
We wanted Eastbourne's Carnival to return because we know it brings the town together. It serves to remind us what makes Eastbourne great. It's a celebration of the best of our town, and the passion that we have for it.
So come out, support our carnival and help us celebrate our wonderful town.
See you then!
