Weymouth party shop gears up for carnival
1:00pm Monday 13th August 2012 in News
Owner Jan O’Brien is carnival crazy and says it’s the best day of the year.
She will be entering a float once again, the theme of which she is keeping a secret, and hopes to build on last year’s success when the shop won the Best Entry award for its Bugsy Malone float.
“We’ve got our eye on the silverware again this year – or maybe we should be going for gold as we’ve just had the Olympics ,” Jan said.
She added: “After the success of hosting the Olympics, the carnival will be the icing on the cake for Weymouth.
“I hope people who were here for the Games will hang around because it’s such a great day.”
