Courier readers are being asked to help vote on the name of a major community festival to be held in Carnoustie this summer.
The free festival at Carnoustie House Grounds on July 21 is intended as a way local people can celebrate the return of The Open golf tournament.
Organised by Carnoustie Community Development Trust, a series of stalls and entertainment is planned for the fun day.
However, the organisers are looking for help deciding which of four names to choose for the day, which it is hoped will become an annual event.
The shortlist is Carnoustival, Carnivaloustie, Noustie Fest and Noustie Hoolie.
Suzi Caesar, who is a board member of the Trust, said: “The festival is for Carnoustie and so we want people in Carnoustie and the surrounding area to name it.
“We initially had a longlist of around 20 names suggested by festival stakeholders and businesses and we’ve whittled it down to four.
“I think they are all good festival names that I think we could build a brand around.”
CHOOSE YOUR FAVOURITE
People can vote during mornings at the town’s Access office within Carnoustie Library, which is now acting as the festival’s headquarters.
The deadline for voting is on Monday, May 14 at noon.
The festival will feature a farmer’s market, live music, static displays and a variety of demonstrations.
For youngsters there is a children’s assault course, face painting, storytelling and messy fun.
“We want to do the festival every year and ultimately build it into an events programme where something is happening every month to attract people into the town,” Suzi added.
Carnoustie Community Development Trust is also looking for volunteers to help distribute 30,000 maps and guides when the huge volume of tourists come to the town.
Starting this weekend, the group is releasing weekly videos focusing on a resident speaking about the town on a new website called Hello Carnoustie.
