BEHIND THE SCENES

WEDNESDAY 20TH APRIL TO FRIDAY MORNING 22ND APRIL 2022

Always wanted to see how a float is made? Construction takes place over three days in a large local hall where you can see hundreds of volunteers decorating the floats with fragrant, colourful, spring bulb flowers including hyacinths, daffodils and tulips.

The flowers are pinned to the floats via a special technique called 'staking'. If you are lucky you may get the opportunity to try for yourself. How exciting to actually see your own handiwork passing by on the parade.
