The Aylesbury Town Centre Partnership is delighted to announce the return of Santa`s Parade, taking place on Sunday 27 November. A real family favourite, where this year Santa will be accompanied by his elves, three beautiful camels with very Wise Men, larger than life penguins, winter foxes, Snow Princesses, a Happy Snowman, real donkeys, a samba band and a colourful array of music and dance groups.
The parade of characters and local groups will sing and dance their way through the town at 10.45am, starting from the Upper High Street by Hale Leys Shopping Centre and making their way around Market Square. After the parade there is a range of entertainment, including go-karts, a small fun fair and donkey rides for the kids.
From 1pm, the Santa Dash family fun run will leave Kingsbury and make its way through town in aid of Florence Nightingale Hospice. If you want to join in with this worthwhile event, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, booking forms are available from Dead Universe Comics, Bourbon Street, Aylesbury or the Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity, Walton Street, Aylesbury.
Friars Square Manager, Andy Margieson, said: “Friars Square is eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Christmas lights and Santa’s Grotto. Santa will be welcomed to his festive residence outside the Pavilion, after the parade on Sunday 27 November, and will meet the town’s children in the run up to Christmas with his little helpers.”
Aylesbury Town Centre Manager, Diana Fawcett, said: “There are a wide range of Christmas activities in Aylesbury town across November and December, both for families and for shoppers, and the Aylesbury Town Centre Partnership is delighted to be hosting this enormously popular festive event.”
