Moulton Chapel TulipTime parade returns on Sunday May 5





An annual parade featuring competitions, entertainment, food and more is set to return with a whole host of family fun this bank holiday weekend.

The Moulton Chapel TulipTime Parade will be taking place on Sunday, May 5 and as organisers gear up for the popular event to return, they hope it will be bigger and better than last year.

After reaching a record number of visitors and participants in the 2023 parade, make sure to not miss out on this year’s fun.

One of the organisers is Karen Hemmant, who said: "We are hoping for a bumper crowd and decent weather. Hopefully the sunshine will bring everyone out."

In addition to the parade there will be floats, music, entertainment, food, drink, stalls, crafts, classic cars, vintage vehicles such as tractors, buses and motor-bikes, dancing and much more.
