Yes folks, for one day only, the kids are taking over Brighton. Don’t worry, it’s just the Children’s Parade and it’s going to be lots of fun, especially for visitors to Brighton bringing their families and kids.
The traditional curtain raiser for the Brighton Fringe Festival sees school children enjoy their own carnival, as the city closes its roads and lets them run wild. Well, not wild – the event is always well organised.
Float after colourful float will pass throgh Sydney Street all the way to Madeira Drive. If you are here with the kids you really should get along. Favoured vantage spots in the North Laines get very crowded, but the atmosphere is always special and amplified by Brighton’s narrow streets.
The fun begins at 10:30 (just a touch too early for many of the usual ‘laine crawlers’) and finishes only when the final float has passed. Too many events get branded as ‘must see’, but I have to say it: For people staying in Brighton with families and kids, the Children’s Parade is a ‘must see’.
This year’s theme is ‘The Planet’, so expect upwards of 4,000 children from 70 local schools to bring the party, and with it a positive message.Share on Facebook
