Stamford Festival 'Parade through the Decades' gears up for June 22, 2019
There’s just a couple of weeks to go until the 40th Parade of Floats as part of Stamford Festival.
To celebrate the event’s major birthday the theme for this year’s parade will be Festival Parades through the Decades reflecting the changing nature of our life in Stamford since the 1970s.
The parade, which takes place on Saturday, June 22, is organised by Stamford and District Kiwanis.
It will run from the Recreation Ground and through the centre of Stamford on Saturday, June 22.
There are 16 entrants in this year’s parade and there are four acts performing in the arena once the parade has returned to the Recreation Ground, where there are fairground rides and stalls as well.
The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight will also send a Hurricane over during the event.
Activities on the field will take place between midday and 5pm, with the parade expected to take place between 2pm and 3.30pm during which time North Street, Scotgate, Broad Street, Star Lane and Red Lion Square will be closed to traffic until the parade has passed.
Donations will go towards local good causes.
