Granny Smith Virtual Shoebox Float Competition

Create your own Granny Smith Virtual Shoebox Float!

Usually the Granny Smith Festival would open with its huge Grand Street Parade which involved over 2,000 people. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are not able to have the usual epic Grand Street Parade this year, but instead we want you to help us create our first Online Granny Smith Carnival Parade.

This year’s competition will consist of two age groups 3 – 6 years and 7 – 12 years, with the winner of each age group leading their groups online parade.

Contestants can create a 3D mini model float out of a shoebox (or similar sized box) and using recyclable materials (cereal boxes, toilet rolls, buttons etc).

Judges will be on the lookout for floats that are inspired by the Granny Smith Festival, are colourful, use recyclable materials and for their creativity. Bonus points will be given if your float is Granny Smith Apple themed. Click here for some Inspiration!
