parade participant

Have you always wanted to participate in the parade, but did not know how? Get a group of friends, your community group or just a wonderful solo you. Dress up, make some funky musical instruments or maybe a wacky and wonderful performance piece that links in with this year's theme 'Rivers of Light'. Celebrate with everything from Alice to celestial, winter to fantasy - and lots and lots of fairy lights!!
