The carnival will not be complete without the City’s firefighters, who are all set to attract their fair share of attention once again.
This year a contingent of Law Enforcement and Traffic Services officers will be joining their firefighting counterparts to add to the brawn and glamour. For the first time the group will have their very own float.
The City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security; and Social Services, Alderman JP Smith, visited the carnival workshop yesterday, where teams were hard at work putting the finishing touches to the range of floats.

‘The carnival is a colourful expression of our diverse communities and a celebration of the cultural diversity of our city. Young and old can expect to be mesmerised by wacky puppets, giant floats and elaborate costumes. Additionally, a display of well-choreographed performances by our very own home-grown talent alongside their professional counterparts is guaranteed to keep all spectators enthralled and in awe,’ said Alderman Smith.
