Preparations underway in Edinburgh for the Festival Carnival in July

Car Hire Edinburgh Airport just can’t get enough of all the festivals taking place this year as another one is getting itself in shape for another year. 

Back for its third year the Edinburgh Festival Carnival is set to be explosive on Sunday 20th July. It is an extravaganza of colour and music supported by the City of Edinburgh Council; it will be free for all. A number of exciting events will take place during July trying to encourage people to join in the fun of the Carnival.

The Festival Carnival is organised by Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival, and Producer, Roger Spence, said “The Carnival is established now as a terrific free city centre event with something for everyone. We want to encourage more Edinburgh people to join in, and thanks to support from the City of Edinburgh Council, the Scottish Government’s Expo Fund and Culture 2014, we’re able to offer a range of really exciting Carnival workshops and events that will hopefully encourage more people not just to come out and watch the events on July 20, but to take part in them, too!”

The events offer adults and children of all abilities the opportunity to learn basic carnival skills, such as costume making, drumming, playing music and dancing. These events will take place at community centres across the city in the build up to Carnival day. Search for the free events on-line.

The carnival are also looking for volunteers to support the events for people aged eighteen and over as stewards, liaison and production support for the workshops, party and carnival, plus people to take part in the parade.
