Popular Enfield Town Christmas parade returns for second year
A Christmas parade was so popular last year it will be held again this month.
The Parade of Light, which celebrates the Christmas lights being switched on, attracted more than 1,000 people and raised £1,355 for charity.
This year’s hour-long procession complete with colourful floats will take place on Sunday, November 25, from 4pm.
More than 400 people are expected to parade from Enfield Civic Centre in Silver Street to Baker Street, through Lancaster Road, Chase Side, before finishing at Church Street.
Enfield scouts and guides, Blaze cheerleaders, police and sea cadets as well as performers from London Pantomimers and Platinum Stage School will join the parade.
Organiser Kathy Worrall said: “It was so good last year; everybody said we should do it again this year so the ball started rolling from last year.
“Because of how well it went we have a few more shops on board. It’s a feel good factor and there are a lot of youngsters involved.”
Sixteen Enfield shops are sponsoring the event which will raise money for the Mayor of Enfield Charitable Trust, Nightingale Cancer Support Centre, and the Borough of Enfield Voluntary Association for the Disabled.
