Alt text: Blackburn Funfair Parade

Who doesn’t like a parade?

This year’s parade theme is Team Blackburn! 2024 is an Olympic year so let’s celebrate the games, and sports of all types, right here in our community!

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