It began as a small basic site but has now grown into an informative and intersting archive, which gives a good outline of the Parade and what it is all about. The site is updated throughout the year giving information on Events and any other surrounding issues.
The Parade has continued in its growth and popularity from its inception in 2001, each year striving to improve on the last, with the enthusiasm of both participants and
spectators alike, ensuring it is a great success. It is generally agreed it is a fantastic Parade with the efforts of all involved,
being displayed through wonderful performance, making for an
enjoyable Parade all
This year's Parade follows the now successful format used for former Parades, with once again 2 visiting bands from Ireland partaking. The Parade has managed to secure the services of The Tulla Pipe Band, Co. Clare and The Shannon (ceili group), Co. Limerick and we look forward to welcoming them both to Huddersfield.
