As Darkness Falls….the Festival of Light Parade Starts

The Lantern Parade is headed by the Oatlands Pipe Band and features Santa in his sleigh along with children from many local schools.

If you can help with volunteering on the day the Walton on Thames Festival of Light organisers are looking for volunteers to marshall the parade and carry/chaperone the large lanterns.

There are also a few spots left for gift stalls.

If you are interested in either of the above please contact Joanna Gordon at joanna.wotta@gmail.com
