Alt text: Blackburn Funfair Parade

Who doesn’t like a parade?

Our parade theme this year is Gold in honour of our 50th FunFair, so come out and celebrate our Golden Anniversary Parade.

We would love to see all the parade supporters sporting any type of golden attire to cheer on our parade participants. Our organising team is hard at work to make this a great parade to celebrate our golden anniversary. The parade always brings out a big crowd of  Friends, Neighbors, Businesses, all showing their local pride along the 45-minute parade route.
