The Parade

You might just see a Dalek marching down The Grove or a Teletubbie walking down Brook Street this May when the Ilkley Carnival parade comes back to town!

Local schools will be joining together to walk in the parade dressed up as their favourite TV stars and we're extremely excited to see their creative and colourful outfits.

Last year the Ilkley Carnival parade saw 1,000 participants from local schools and organisations march along The Grove, dazzling audiences with their "At the Movies" inspired outfits.

Spectators witnessed colourful Trollz dancing through the streets, Wizards of Oz characters skipping with pride, and Disney heroes and villains royally waving to their friends and family, as they led visitors down to the carnival showground.

On Monday 7th May, roads close at 11am - 12.15 as the parade starts its procession at 11am from The Grove, down Brook Street and then into Denton Road arriving at the East Holmes Field carnival showground at around 11.45am. For further information please contact Karen Hitchin on
