Melksham - Carnival, Party in the Park, and Spot the Oddity

Saturday, 17th July 2010. There's a lot happening in Melksham, and here (for the newcomer) is a list of the events which are separately organised but co-operatively co-ordinated.

MajorettesMelksham Carnival. The Melksham Carnival Parade assembles at Cooper Tires in the afternoon, and leaves at 6 p.m. to follow a route around the town. There will be a marching band, floats of all sorts (spectacular and otherwise) and you'll see the Carnival Queen and her princesses too. The Carnival is organised by the Carnival Committee - their web site is [here].


Spot the Oddity. From 9th July to 1st August, dozens of shops in Melksham will have "oddities" in their window displays, and local people and visitors to the town will be encourgade to go around and see if they can spot them. It's great fun for the young, the old, and the 'tweens. The entry form is printed in the Carnival program, and a small prize is given by the Chamber of Commerce, who organise the competition, for all forms returned (even if you don't find every oddity). There are also winner's prizes in a number of catergories - awarded after the closing date / hand in your forms by 4th August.

Hot Air balloon - Party in the ParkMelksham Party in the Park. The Party in the Park, which takes place in the King George V Playing Fields from 2pm onwards, is this year bigger and better than ever - with stalls, sideshows, music and entertainment aimed at all the family! Entry will be £3 (?) per person, which includes access to all the entertainments on offer, and the best view in town of the fireworks at the end of the evening. The Party in the Park has its own organising commitee and web site - see [here] and is a great fun afternoon and evening.


Me? I'm helping on the periphery to organise "Spot the Oddity", and doing some behind the scenes stuff for "the Carnival". On the day, I'll probably be on a stall in the afternoon, watching the carnival parade and taking photos - or perhaps even somewhere in the parade. There's plenty of food and drink and children's entertainment going on - what a great day for everyone from in and out of Melksham to participate and get involved - or just watch - and have fun whichever they choose to do.
