Let it Snow, let it Snow, let it Snow

The Wokingham Paper - - NEWS -

A royal visit had res­i­dents beam­ing with joy last Sun­day as Wood­ley en­joyed its first-ever princess pa­rade.

The af­ter­noon event, or­gan­ised by Snow Princess Par­ties, fea­tured seven princesses and one su­per­hero who are usu­ally stars of the Wood­ley Car­ni­val.

Re­gional di­rec­tor of Snow Princess Par­ties, Sarah Zeneli said: “We’re re­ally pleased with how Sun­day’s event went.

“It was very well at­tended and put huge smiles of lots of chil­dren’s face.”

“The aim of the pa­rade was to cre­ate a mag­i­cal ex­pe­ri­ence for fam­i­lies who have been stuck in­side dur­ing lock­down.”

From 3pm the char­ac­ters spread their magic through­out Wood­ley, stop­ping off at spots on Nightin­gale Road, Camp­bell Road, Wood­lands Av­enue, Howth Drive, Arun­del Road, Church Road and Comet Way.

Ms Zeneli added: “At each stop we had about 100 peo­ple. Fam­i­lies joined the princesses in singing and danc­ing along to the songs and many chil­dren were wear­ing their own out­fits.

“At the end of the af­ter­noon the char­ac­ters also per­formed to Let it Go from Frozen which was a great hit with the kids. The at­mos­phere was fan­tas­tic.”

And the pa­rade was such a suc­cess that the team want to make it an an­nual event along­side its other ac­tiv­i­ties.

Ms Zeneli said: “We’ve hosted the pa­rade in both Maiden­head and

Wood­ley and fol­low­ing such a bril­liant re­sponse are hop­ing to run it again next year.”

“We’re also look­ing for­ward to host­ing our princess par­ties again which fol­low­ing changes to gov­ern­ment guide­lines we can start to do.

“We can now of­fer so­cial dis­tanced par­ties which will last for one hour and can be held in cus­tomers’ homes for up to six guests.

“The magic will be the same, we’ll just be more spaced out.”

Snow Princess Par­ties have also run vir­tual par­ties and one to one Zoom ses­sions with chil­dren through­out lock­down.
