Mayor's Parade Float Trophy Reintroduced after 13 Years
Thursday June 16 2011
This year's Mayor's Parade is reverting back to old traditions with a 12 noon start time and the inclusion of floats of transit size.
Parade entry judging will be reintroduced to the event for the first time since the 1998 parade, with trophies awarded for best float, best walking group and outstanding contribution. Judging will take place on the day at 10am.
Mayor of Barnsley CounKaren Dyson, said: "Groups of all sizes are encouraged to take part in what should be an excellent day for all the family. People have been asking for the floats to make a reappearance for some time, so come on Barnsley, do us proud."
