Parade Overview

We are very happy to welcome you to Baylight ’23 and our Friday Night Prom Light event. We will be holding our parade on Friday 17th February. This is a chance for local groups and people that have taken part in our workshops to come along and join in the parade which will be led by Baybeat from More Music. The parade will begin at the start of our trail by the sailing club and wander down to the Midland area where Samba Espirito will be waiting to take up their sticks and show off their skills with the drumming set. Once this has finished we would like to invite participants and public to enjoy the installations on display along the prom.
