Polish Club Mardi Gras Parade
Sikorski Polish Club, 5 Parkgrove Terrace, Glasgow G3 7SD
West End Festival - Mardi Gras Parade - Glasgow. 15 June - 2pm The Sikorski Polish club is organising a 'Polish Style' entry for the Opening Parade of "Scotland's Mardi Gras" on Sunday 15 June. The Mardi Gras Parade, with a theme of NATURE, will have many percussion bands and participants wearing exotic costumes: it starts from Botanic Gardens, parades down Byres Road, along Dumbarton Road to Kelvingrove
Park where the party will continue.
We want our contribution from the Polish Community in Scotland, along with our Scottish and international friends, to make a vibrant impact, with costume, dance, and music. Several artists will work with us. Our entry is sponsored by The Sikorski Polish Club and West End Festival, aided by many performers and individuals.
If you can help us with costume making and decorations, or if you are a musician/drummer or dancer, please contact us. If you want to take part, old or young, to join the fun, let us know - but everyone should be dressed in an interesting way, so help us prepare. Let's show Glasgow how to do carnival 'Polish Style'.
All donations to our Mardi Gras Fund are very welcome - contacts below - acknowledgements for all sponsors. Also during the Festival period - an Exhibition by Polish photographers, and a barbecue. We will also document the Parade (film etc). Meet us Saturdays at the Club 2pm> or
