We are delighted to announce our sponsorship of the vibrant and cherished Market Harborough Carnival. Held annually on the second Saturday in June, this much-anticipated community event brings together residents, local businesses, and volunteers for a day of festivities and camaraderie. As an advocate of community engagement and support, IT3000 proudly contributed to the success of the carnival, which took place on June 10th, 2023.
Celebrating Unity and Tradition:
The Market Harborough Carnival holds a special place in the hearts of the town's residents. It symbolises unity, tradition, and the community's dedication to coming together to celebrate their shared values and vibrant local spirit. The event commenced with a lively float procession through the town, culminating in the Symington Recreational Ground, where a multitude of activities awaited attendees.
Exciting Attractions and Festivities:
The carnival offered something for everyone, with over 90 stalls featuring delectable food, refreshing drinks, games, and an array of local businesses showcasing their offerings. From handmade crafts to delicious treats, the market stalls provided a unique shopping experience that showcased the diverse talents and entrepreneurship of the region.
As the main stage came alive with performances by talented local acts throughout the day, attendees were treated to a diverse range of music, entertainment, and dance. The atmosphere was electric, as the crowd swayed to the rhythm and cheered for their favorite performers. Adding to the excitement, a thrilling football tournament and a Carnival 10K Run attracted sports enthusiasts and participants of all ages.
Embracing the Green Theme: Paving the Way for a Sustainable Future
The Market Harborough Carnival has always been a platform for promoting community action and inspiring positive change. This year, in conjunction with The Great Big Green Week, the carnival proudly kicked off The Great Big Green Carnival, with a central theme focused on all things "Green." This timely alignment with the national celebration of community action against climate change and the protection of nature provided the perfect opportunity to raise awareness about our collective responsibility to the environment and to inspire sustainable actions.
The carnival committee, fully aware of the challenges involved in creating an environmentally friendly event, remained committed to sustainability. Last year, they planted 500 trees to offset the event's carbon footprint. Collaboration with Sustainable Harborough Community and other green organisations during the planning process allowed for the implementation of sustainable initiatives.
A dedicated "Green Street" on the Showground showcased environmentally conscious traders and organisations, offering demonstrations of their eco-friendly practices and sustainable products. Additionally, participating floats decorated their trucks with creative interpretations of the Green theme, representing diverse perspectives on environmental responsibility.
By embracing the Green theme, the Market Harborough Carnival served as a powerful platform for educating attendees about climate change and inspiring positive action. The event motivated individuals to adopt sustainable practices in their daily lives, contributing to a greener future.
