One of the biggest carnival parades in the North East, the hugely popular South Tyneside Festival Summer Parade returns on Saturday 6 July.
We will be heading to a galaxy far, far away with this year's parade as the theme is all about space.
Inspired by the likes of Star Wars and the moon landings, it will be a cosmic adventure to remember!
Expect to be hugely impressed with amazing costumes, fantastic floats and fabulous song and dance as the parade makes its way from South Shields Town Hall to Bents Park at South Shields Seafront, where the fun will continue with even more entertainment all afternoon long.
We're delighted to announce that joining the party at Bents Park will be the amazing dancing Stormtroopers, Boogie Storm, who of course wowed audiences when they appeared on Britain's Got Talent. There will be lots more entertainment and activities to enjoy during the afternoon, ranging from dancing slinkies from Australian theatre group, Bedlam Oz, the illusion of flying with Heliosphere and coming face to face with Titan the Robot!
Certainly an event not to be missed!
