By the time the June Parish News is distributed we will have held our Spring Fete and crowned our new Water Carnival Queen, Maisie Gregory and her attendants, Gracie Quartly, Freddy Harbert and Billy Elkint, who are all looking forward to their roles for this year.
Visit our website www.shaldonwatercarnival.co.uk for a review and images of the day's events and of the 2016 Royal Party.
56th Water Carnival Day - 6th August 2016
The committee are now focussed on preparations for the Water Carnival Day on Shaldon beach.
Water Carnival Day is a unique occasion taking place in one of Devon’s prettiest seaside villages where villagers and visitors, families and friends get together to enjoy a day packed with fun.
The beach becomes awash with traditional stalls and games, food and drinks stalls and lots of events throughout the day, including the fancy dress competition and parade through Shaldon. Later in the day the estuary comes alive with the decorated boat parade which is followed by live evening entertainment and BBQ on The Green.
More information on the day's events will be given in the July Parish News but it's not too early to be planning your boat entries for the parade. We had a good turnout last year and some great ideas... what can you think of to amaze everyone this year?
