Spalding Flower Parade
Saturday 5 May
The world famous Spalding Flower Parade takes place on Saturday 5 May and starts from Springfields Arena at 2pm.
This is the 54th Parade and the theme for this year's floats is 'Food Glorious Food'.
For more information on the Parade visit their web site at www.spalding-flower-parade.org.uk.
Springfields Festival & Classic Car Show
Saturday 5 & Sunday 6 May
There will be plenty going on in the Springfields Arena and Festival Gardens over Parade weekend.
On Saturday the Parade starts from the arena, giving visitors a chance to view all the floats and soak up the atmosphere as the excitement builds towards the formation of the parade and its departure at 2pm. It's the ideal place to grab that special photograph of the floats in all their glory, plus see the bands warming up and all the dance groups in their colourful costumes.
As well as seeing the preparations for the Parade on Saturday, there will be lots more to see and do at Springfields' site, both inside in the exhibition halls and outside in the arena and around the beautiful Festival Gardens. There are flower displays by the South Holland churches, arts and craft stalls and a whole range of other interesting attractions, including of course a wide range of catering options, from hot meals in the restaurant to cold snacks and bar facilities.
Throughout the Festival Gardens there will be thousands of tulips and daffodils “blooming” in the woodlands and the landscaped flower beds, providing the usual spectacular splash of colour, although all the flower displays will be dependant on how the weather has been in the weeks leading up to parade weekend.
On Sunday, in addition to the Festival, the Springfields Classic Car Show returns for its third year. There will be around 200 classic cars on show during the day, a must for any car enthusiasts and those who just like to admire the time and effort put in by the exhibitors.
