The parade is set to get underway at 11:30am at Goodlands Gardens. It will last around 30 minutes and people are then encouraged to head over to Vivary Park for the festival that includes live music, theatre, stands and a bar.
At Vivary Park, there will be two stages hosted by Arina Fox and Virina Flower. The literary area will be coordinated by The Jemima Layzell Trust, the children’s area, the artist’s quarter, the well-being zone coordinated by The Sangha House and a wide range of awareness stools, food and bars.
