This years battle saw The Optimists Club come away as winners for a third year in a row with their fantastic ‘Prix d’Honneur’ float! (See below)
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 took roughly 7 months – a huge task!
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.
After such a fantastic Battle this year – we’re looking forward to seeing what the team produce for 2015.
“…ICCI’s endless support has been invaluable and proven to be not only an asset but a real driving force behind our success.” Paul Michel, Chairperson of The Optimists Club.
