PORTLAND PARADE

Published 02/07/21

Sunday 12 September, 4.00 - 6pm.

Meet at Easton Gardens.

We will be parading through the streets of Portland and everyone is invited to take part. Portland has a tradition of parades - we would like to revive this custom and end our festival with a celebratory gathering through the streets of Portland led by you all as well as our festival artists, and b-side volunteers.

We want as many community members as possible to get involved, so tell your friends, your family, your sports team, and your knitting club. The theme for this year's parade is “Celebrate Portland” and we are encouraging people to come dressed as anything to do with the island: a favorite shop on the island / a landmark / the island itself!

Have a look at the route we will be taking, this is a walking Parade with no motorised vehicles, we are planning on having a few different points on the route where you can join in if you don't want to do the whole walk.

More info to follow, but in the mean time get planning!
