Spring into St George's Day announces carnival procession

Spring into St George's Day, Telford's family favourite event, is set to include a carnival procession this year featuring the infamous Veolia scrap dragon. 

The Spring parade which will lead from Southwater One down to the Town Park Arena will begin at 11.30am. Local community groups in the borough will be coming together yet again to showcase a fabulous display of dance, music and costumes to celebrate St George's Day from the past and present. 

Telford's Got Talent will be introducing their talent stage in Southwater One throughout the day where audiences can watch performances from those auditioning for this year's talent show. 

The Ironbridge Coracle Trust will have coracles on display on Southwater Lake.

The full lineup includes a special visit from Paw Patrol characters Chase and Marshall, exciting arena demonstrations from a BMX display team to stunt horse riders plus a range of engaging entertainment including a dog show, a circus skills tent, pony rides, kids go karting, walk about characters, a magical musical bike and lots more. 

Liz Noakes, Assistant Director for Health and Well Being said "We are extremely proud to be hosting the Spring into St George's Day here in Telford to celebrate the patron saint of England himself. We know how much people enjoy the community element of all our events so we are delighted to be able to add the carnival parade to Spring this year."

Spring into St George's Day is a free event and takes place on Saturday 27 April 2019 in Telford Town Park, 11am to 4pm.
