Wild creatures great and small will roam the streets of Spalding for the second annual People’s Parade on Sunday, May 24.

Schools are adding magic to the big day by creating animal-themed floats – including an elephant that’s taking shape under the watchful eyes of pupils at Gosberton House School.

The response from schools has been amazing this year, it really has.

Parade publicity officer Kate Alexander said: “The response from schools has been amazing this year, it 
really has.

“Animals is the children’s theme for the floats but the theme of the parade is family celebration. It’s time to have fun with your family.

“The parade is going to be bigger this year – every year we are aiming to make it just that little bit bigger and better.”

The fun day starts at 11am with free entry to the parade base – Spalding’s Sir John Gleed School – and live entertainment through the day will include music from The Sound Injectors as well as an appearance by singing town centre manager Dennis Hannant.

There will also be a host of indoor and outdoor stalls at the school as well as another feature new for this year, a licensed bar.

The parade from the school will be headed by The Breaston Highlanders followed by at least ten schools, community groups and businesses with their handmade, push-along floats.

Spalding People’s Parade committee is still inviting volunteer stewards and helpers on the day, as well as stallholders, community groups and businesses to support the event. Get involved by calling 07437 936684 or email spaldingparade@outlook.com
