The first Saturday of July each year marks the date of the hotly-anticipated Hale Carnival. The family-friendly event is a culmination of the hard work put in by local community volunteers, and it's paid for through fundraising and a range of other grants.
All the hard work that goes into organising such a wonderful event pays off, though, and the carnival is always a huge success. We were back once again this year, providing our outdoor staging, lighting and sound equipment to help ensure that the carnival went off without a hitch.
We're proud to have been involved in this event for many years, and this year was yet another fantastic carnival. The weather was perfect, the crowds were huge, and there was a great atmosphere throughout the day.
So, let's tell you a little bit more about the day and our involvement in it.
Hale Carnival Returns to the Delight of Locals and Visitors Alike
The Hale Carnival is a much-anticipated annual event that takes place on the first Saturday of July. As always, the carnival featured a procession through the streets of Hale. The floats and costumes were incredible, and the atmosphere was electric.
Once the parade reached the carnival grounds, it was time for the fun to begin. There were stalls and games offering a whole host of activities and merchandise. From tombola stalls to those selling books, plants, sweets, jewellery and seemingly everything in between, there was something for everyone at the carnival.
Of course, no carnival would be complete without a food tent offering up a selection of delicious treats. From hot dogs to candy floss, there was something to tantalise everyone's taste buds. In addition to the food tent, there was a wine and beer tent, a Pimm's tent, a Gin tent, and a cakes and teas tent run by a combination of carnival volunteers and the Hale Scout Group.
On the entertainment side, there was a funfair for the children, a dog show, and a stage for live music and dance performances, which included a rock choir! Lastly, the whole day was capped off at 10 pm with a firework fiesta.
Outdoor Stages Supplies the Event Production Equipment to Help Make it All Possible
We're delighted to have been able to supply the main stage along with the sound and lighting equipment for the Hale Carnival. The stage was erected on Friday evening in preparation for the big day, and we supplied our usual 6m x 4m stage for the occasion.
While we would consider this structure one of our smaller festival stage hire options, it undoubtedly still packs a punch and was the perfect size for the event. We supplied a full d&b audiotechnik PA system to ensure that everyone in attendance could enjoy the live music, along with other audio equipment such as wired microphones and a digital mixing desk.
On the lighting front, we supplied a range of LED PAR can lights, moving head fixtures, uplighters, and spotlights. This allowed us to create various looks for the stage, which helped to add to the overall carnival atmosphere.
The day went off without a hitch, and we were thrilled to have played our part in yet another successful Hale Carnival. We're always thrilled to be able to contribute to such a fantastic community-funded and organised event, and we're already looking forward to next year's edition.
