As the countdown to Rio 2016 begins, we could only talk about a Carnival costume theme
today. Rio is famous for its elaborate costumes, but a carnival theme could include any type of costume, you’ve only got to think about floats in your local carnival to see the amount of diverse costumes that are worn. On the continent, Carnival also includes masquerade masks as well as costumes
Carnival Costume Ideas:
- Latin Ameican Man costume
- Halloween costumes
- our float in the Burnham on Crouch carnival this year is going to be based on Halloween – come along and say hello!
- Anything colourful
Yesterday was the final day of the Paralympics and so as things return to normal and everyone gets back to the day-to-day business of going to work, today we thought we would take a look at some of the achievements of the games.
When it was announced seven years ago that London was due to be the host of the Olympics in 2012, there was much jubilation amongst certain members of the population, whilst, with others, a healthy scepticism was thrown into the mix, on the grounds that London would be unable to deliver. There were many occasions when the sceptics seemed to be winning the contest but once things were under way, most people got caught in the spirit of both occasions and suddenly everyone was a sport expert. The carnival of the Olympics and Paralympics games is now over for the next four years and thoughts move on to 2016 in Rio de Janiero, well-known for its carnival atmosphere. So, the sports festivals may be over, but elsewhere the parties continue.
