The much-loved Children’s Parade, with thousands of students from local community groups and schools taking part with handmade costumes, marks the beginning of the 50th year of the Brighton Festival on Saturday 7th May at 10:30am.


This colourful, fun, noisy and uplifting event is the the biggest parade of its kind in Europe. The theme for costumes and décor this year is “Brighton celebrates.” One of the Fringe City Family Picnics with free activities, crafts, games and performances will take place after the parade on the Pavilion Gardens and there will be another of these picnics Saturday on 14th May 2016.


Different sections of this spectacular parade will focus on different celebrities with music playing a major role.
