Macclesfield Express - - YOUR PICTURES -

PREST­BURY Rose Queen Fes­ti­val is back this month.

The tra­di­tional pa­rade on Satur­day, June 13, will be fol­lowed by a host of stalls and en­ter­tain­ments in­clud­ing a bouncy cas­tle, a pets’ cor­ner with goats and al­paca, a carousel, a house of fun, felt toys and bal­loon an­i­mal magic.

There will also be face paint­ing, tombo­las, dog groom­ing, sponge throw­ing and plant, book and greet­ing card stalls.

Sue Parker, so­cial chair­woman of St Peter’s Church in the vil­lage who has or­gan­ised the event for the last four years, said: “It is a huge fam­ily event that has been go­ing for about 50 years and brings ev­ery­one from the com­mu­nity to­gether.

“Ev­ery­one from the church is so happy to help too, both young­sters and older peo­ple.”

The pa­rade, in­clud­ing vis­it­ing Rose Queens and their at­ten­dants, will leave Prest­bury C of E Pri­mary School at 1pm and will be led by Macclesfield Ju­nior Brass Band and Bolling­ton Air Cadets.

Chil­dren can wear a fancy dress cos­tume of their choice, with nurs­ery chil­dren in­vited to dress up their ted­dies, and floats and dec­o­rated bi­cy­cles also wel­comed.

The pa­rade will fin­ish back at the school at 1.30pm, when Mairie Florence will be crowned as Rose Queen and Iso­bel Speake as Rose Bud.

Dis­plays on the field dur­ing the af­ter­noon will in­clude Deirdre Mid­dle­ton Dance School, Macclesfield Ju­nior Brass Band and Bolling­ton Air Cadets.

No fes­ti­val is com­plete with­out food of course and fes­ti­val-go­ers can tuck into siz­zling sausages and burg­ers from Prest­bury Farm Shop as well as cakes, ice cream from Granelli’s and af­ter­noon teas served in the school hall, all washed down with a sea­sonal Pimms from the Pimms stall or an­other drink from the bar.

The fete is £2.50 for adults, free for chil­dren, and in­cludes a free raf­fle ticket.
