Hildreds Hits the Big Top for Local Carnival


Hildreds Shopping Centre is known for its creative displays and the effort it puts into its holiday decor. So it should come as no surprise that when shopping center staff put their minds to participating in a community parade, they’d give it their all.

The 2010 Skegness Carnival had a Mardi Gras theme, and Hildreds embraced it whole-heartedly. They dressed up as clowns, trapeze artists, and strong men, and created a float that included a a polystyrene eight foot elephant, a big top tent, lions and a clown car filled with bubbles and smoke.

The shopping center took first place in the float competition. The carnival, which Hildreds Shopping Centre sponsors each year, raises money for community charities. Pete Roffe, shopping centre manager, said: “We are pleased to take part in such a community driven occasion. The carnival is always a crowd puller for the town and gives everyone the chance to work together to make it a success. Every member of the Hildreds team had a great time, and coming first in the trade category is the icing on the cake to a tremendous day had by all.
