Festival Parade Will Bring a Carnival Spirit to Leyland
This year the parade vehicles for the Worden Motor Village will line up on Hough Lane from 11.00am with an opportunity for photographs with all the different types of cars, plus the military and specialist vehicles.
At 12 noon these head off to Worden Park followed on closely by the main parade, which this year is much bigger and better with floats galore
Floats, walking groups, dance troupes, bands, vehicles and entertainers will all take to the streets on Saturday 17th June for the Leyland festival Parade. They will bring a carnival spirit to the whole town, bursting with colour, energy and enthusiasm.
The traditional Festival parade is a much-loved part of Leyland Festival, dating back to the very first Leyland Festival held in May 1889. (For more about the Festival’s history, visit Leyland Library to see their display of Festival history taken from local archives)
The Festival has evolved over the years, but the parade is still very much a central part of the day’s festivities.
Community groups, charities and businesses are preparing a variety of floats and parade performances, all themed around this year’s Festival theme of ‘Music Through The Decades’. We cannot wait to see what they have in store!
Taking part this year we have:
Parade Vehicle Floats:
South Ribble Netball Club
Leyland Pirates FC
Lancashire Teaching Hospitals Trust
Leyland Albion Football Club
Base on Broadfield & Wade Hall Community Association
