Wear your tulip with pride at family procession

Have your say

Spalding’s new Tulipmania Prince and Princess will lead the procession around the stunning Springfields Festival Gardens.

They will be chosen in a competition run by Tulip Radio earlier on the same day, Saturday, May 2.

The procession will start from the festival arena at Springfields Outlet Shopping Centre at 2.30pm and everyone is invited to join in wearing, if possible, something ‘tulipey’.

Free face painting will be provided by Face Art for those children wanting a tulip on their cheek before the procession.

Children’s favourite Peppa Pig will also be making personal appearances in the gardens at interval throughout the day and will be joining in the procession along part of the route.

Then, on the Sunday, over 250 cars will arrive to join the festival event and participate in the popular Springfields Classic Car Show.

Throughout the weekend there will a craft fair and trade stands in the Events Centre, kiddies fairground rides and musical entertainment around the festival site, provided by local artists, bands and community groups.

In addition there will miniature train rides through the woodlands, military vehicle rides provided by supporters of the Royal Anglian Regiment Benevolent Fund and lots of other fun things to do.

Opening times are Saturday, 9am to 5pm and Sunday, 10am to 4pm.
