Wakefield City Centre

The Earth Spectacular celebration event is taking place on Sunday 5th September with family-friendly events including: interactive workshops, live entertainment from Motionhouse and The Dream Engine and an environmental themed parade!

The parade will celebrate the Festival of the Earth by including animals and creatures from across the world as inflatables, costumed performers and giant puppets - all travelling by foot.

The parade will take a short route around key sites in Wakefield city centre and residents and visitors will be able to watch and engage from several safe vantage points.

The parade is 30 minutes long and will run at 3pm and again at 7pm.

Borough Road car park will be closed on Sunday as well as some of the roads in the town centre (to make way for the spectacular parade), so please consider this when planning your journey.
