Congratulations to The Optimists Club
Congratulations to The Optimists Club, winners of the Jersey Battle of Flowers Prix d’Honneur for a third year in a row!
This year’s float was based around the Chinese New Year celebrations. It depicted various rockets, a large dragon-themed Catherine wheel centre piece, smaller Catherine wheels all over the float and a large carnival dragon at the front. Work on the float started in January and carried on to just hours before the parade started.
The club, who we have had a long-standing sponsorship with, also won: Class 11 – first, Clubs and Associations Award; Animation Award; Moonlight Parade Carnival Atmosphere Award; Spectators Award and Best Illuminated Float.
We can’t wait to see what they come up with next year!
