GET ON THE CANAL TODAY!!!
__JUNE 1ST, 12 (NOON) - THROUGHOUT THE DAY
Only in London!!! I tell you, today make your way to the canals, get IN the INFLATABLE BOATS IN YOUR BEST COSTUME FOR A WHOLE DAY OF ABSOLUTE RAUCOUS NONSENSE!!!!
Remember when a load of people sailed down the Regents Canal on inflatables during last year’s Royal Jubilee? They’re doing it again this year, but BIGGER.
The organisers of Canalival hope more than 5,000 people will bring dinghies, lilos, rubber ducks and anything else that floats for an afternoon of absolute chaos on the water.
A carnival caravan will be leading the way with floats providing Entertainment from LIVE BANDS, DJs, DANCERS and CIRCUS PERFORMERS. Basically, it’s going to be a FESTIVAL, but this time you’re not going to mind GETTING WET.
However, they need your help to do it. Donations are invited via Spacehive to pay for acts, floats, décor, litter pickers and lifeguards.
The carnival is not-for-profit so anything raised above the £3,000 target will be donated to the Canal & River Trust which helps maintain the waterway.
Floats include** The Yacht Club by the organisers of Secret Garden Party, which will be pumping out ska, jive and jazz. The festival has also offered two free tickets to the best independent boat on the day so get thinking about how to pimp that lilo.
Assuming the fundraising target is met, Canalival starts at midday on Saturday 1 June on the canal outside Gainsborough Studios and heads east until, well, everybody decides to go home. Pledge your donation here.
