Come along to this year’s popular Pumpkin Festival, with a dazzling twist!

Music, costumes and dancers will add a fun carnival feel to the popular Spalding festival.

Transported and South Holland District Council have invited Caribbean Carnival arts company EMCCAN to create large scale carnival costumes and lanterns made with local schools.

There will also be a Samba band within the parade with dancers from local schools and dance groups.

The colour theme for the parade is orange and green, so if you’re planning to come and join in with the carnival, make sure you wear these colours.  Can’t wait to see you there!

6.20pm to be at the parade start with a view to leave at 6.30pm.



Transported is a strategic, community-focused programme which aims to get more people in Boston Borough and South Holland enjoying and participating in arts activities.  The programme is overseen by the Centre of Culture and Creativity at the University of Lincoln, and is funded by the Creative People and Places fund from Arts Council England.
