The spectacular Roald Dahl Parade starts at 11am and features a multitude of characters and themes from Roald Dahl's stories recreated in the form of giant puppets, as well as other original artwork made by young people from across Aylesbury Vale. In addition to the colourful and spectacular artwork and puppets created by school children, the parade is brim full of music and street theatre featuring some of the top Samba Bands in the region.
