Aylesbury town centre’s hugely popular Santa’s parade is back this year on Sunday 25 November.
Last year’s spectacular parade reached record numbers, with over 300 people taking part and this year’s promises to be even bigger! The festive parade is made up of local dance groups, professional entertainers, bands, local businesses and organisations - all to help give Santa a warm welcome to the town.
The parade gathers from 10am, and will make a start from 10.45am at Upper High Street. It will then do two loops of Market Square bringing festive cheer to the town centre. The parade finishes by 11.30am, but the fun will continue with activities throughout the town until 3pm. These include go-karts, a small fun fair, arts and crafts, donkey rides and a mouth-watering range of street food.
The town centre team is now calling for local businesses and non-profit groups to join the parade with free entry.
Participants are encouraged to bring along balloons or goodies to hand out, and all attendees must wear Christmas fancy dress. However, there can only be one Santa at the parade - so no Santa costumes are allowed.
“The Christmas parade is one of the most popular events in the town, and we’re delighted to be hosting it again this year. We have lots of exciting professional acts lined up and we urge the local community to get dressed up and have some fun!” said Diana Fawcett, Aylesbury Town Centre & Regeneration Manager.
And Max Hailey, Chair of The Town Centre Partnership, said: “It’s great to see community engagement and business involvement coming together at this festive event.”
Local organisations wishing to get involved in the parade should email Diana Fawcett: firstname.lastname@example.org
