Come and join the fun! The Festival really starts when everyone gathers at the Village Hall car park at 11.45am before the procession leaves at noon for the Fancy Dress Parade around Heald Green Village. Fancy dress can be on any theme, with the Olympics being popular, but children usually have their own ideas!
Please come and join in – young, old, in-betweens, on your own or in a group. The more the merrier!
The parade will be led by the Oldham Pipe Band and the 3rd Heald Green Scouts and Cubs will be decorating the float, kindly lent by Nixon’s Farm! We hope there’ll be other floats and decorated vehicles. It’s not too late to put a few balloons and ribbons on your car or bike and join in the fun. For safety reasons, let us know in advance if your vehicle is taking part. Community groups will join in the Parade and everyone is welcome.
Be at the Village Hall at 11.45am an you’ll be given a spot.
Village Hall – Westwood Road – St Ann’s Rd South & North – Brown Lane – Meadows Road – Ainsdale Drive – Freshfield – Outwood Road – Village Hall
Come out of your house and cheer the groups as they pass then dash along to the field to enjoy the rest of the afternoon!
