Wet weather can­cels Spald­ing Flower Pa­rade fi­nale

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

THE re­cent wet weather has meant changes to the fi­nale planned for to­day’s Spald­ing Flower Pa­rade.

The pa­rade was in­tended to fin­ish at the Sir Hal­ley Ste­wart Field in Win­frey Av­enue for a free fi­nale.

How­ever, as the field is wa­ter­logged the pa­rade will now end at the junc­tion of Pinch­beck Road and King’s Road, where the par­tic­i­pants will dis­em­bark and the floats are taken to Spring­fields Events Cen­tre, off the A16.

The pa­rade will set off at Spring­fields from 2pm to­day and will go on a cir­cuit through the town cen- tre.

As a re­sult of the change of fin­ish­ing lo­ca­tion, the pa­rade will not go along Win­frey Av­enue at all.

The pa­rade is the big­gest event in the town’s cal­en­dar and is ex­pected to bring thou­sands of vis­i­tors to Spald­ing.

Some 1.3 mil­lion tulip heads have been used to dec­o­rate the floats and there will be a cav­al­cade of per­form­ers, mu­si­cians and dancers in­volved in the pa­rade.

The pa­rade will be the 54th held in the town, with this year’s theme “Food, Glo­ri­ous Food”.
