Why not join in the fun with friends and family for the best entry with a float or walking group. It is a fabulous friendly parade which all participants always enjoy and which children in particular will remember for a very long time.
All groups who enter are awarded rosettes and there are trophies for 1st 2nd & 3rd in each section There are also cash prizes of £100, £75 and £50 for the 1st, 2nd & 3rd highest overall scores.
