22/4/2009Kingslink's Got Talent!
The Kingslink Carnival is calling on local groups to take to the stage at the most exciting event in the West.
Whether you’re a budding Beyoncé, the next Jackson Five or a great karate or cheerleading club, whatever your talent, we want to hear from you.
The International Carnival takes place on 27 June in Knightswood Park. This year’s event promises to be bigger and better, thanks to a partnership with Knightswood Gala Day.
The fun kicks of with a parade from Kingsway flats in Scotstoun, which will wind its way through the local area and reach Knightswood Park, where there will be music, dance, singing, and a food village where you can sample flavours from around the world. The Carnival brings people from different cultures together and gives everyone a chance to enjoy the vibrant mix of colour, customs and culture.
Martin Coyle, one of the event organisers, said:
“Each year, this event is created for the community by the community. I am always amazed at the number of people who volunteer to help by giving their time to make it such a success. The skills local people bring make things like the food sampling so popular and give everyone a real flavour of their neighbour’s roots, be it Scottish, Asian or African.”
Scotswoman of the Year and resident of Scotstoun, Jean Donnachie, said:
“As a local woman I am proud to see that seven years on the Carnival continues to bring communities - including Drumchapel, Scotstoun, and Knightswood - together to celebrate a bigger Community in Harmony. I hope that lots of groups like cheerleaders, dancers and singers get involved and show what a talented bunch we are!”
