IN preparation for this year’s Tunarama parade local children have been taking part in costume creating workshops this week. 

The workshops have given children the opportunity to create fish costumes to wear in the Tunarama parade on Saturday, January 28. 

With the parade to have a sea theme this year, the costumes created at the workshop by the children, will be worn in the parade for all to see. 

The workshops had been done in the past and festival coordinator Sally Neville said it was a good way to get more children involved in the parade. 

Artist Karen Carr has been running the workshops, which have created costumes for fish, penguins and sharks. 

FUN: Xavier North-Cheyne and Ollie Scantlebury modelling some of the fish costumes.
