Tonge Carnival 2010

Filed under: Chinese, circus skills, Community, Lion Dance, Stilts, Walkabout — alltheskills @ 12:34 am

All The Skills always finds the people of Bolton to be welcoming and we were pleased that the people attending Tonge Carnival enjoyed meeting Terrance the Chinese lion.

Terrance and his musicians made their Bolton debut in a parade to start the event. Also in the parade representing All The Skills was Naomi, on stilts handing out fortune cookies and continuing the Chinese theme, Sean with his diabolos. The parade had many people from different community groups and schools in the Tonge area and was so much fun that it followed the parade route twice!

After a circus workshop session, Naomi took to her stilts again to assist Terrance, Buddha and the musicians in a short performance at the main stage.  Following the performance Naomi and Sean went into a frenzy of balloon modelling until the end of the wonderful event.
