The route for Halifax’s all-new Christmas Parade has been announced by event organisers, with The Piece Hall chosen as the final destination.
Involving up to 200 costumed characters and expected to attract thousands, the eagerly awaited walking parade on 18 November will follow a simple route through the heart of Halifax, launching the town’s Christmas festivities in the process.
The Parade has been organised and part-funded by Discover Halifax; the non-profit team behind most of the town’s busy Christmas programme of public events, activities and street entertainment.
The family-friendly Christmas Parade begins at Woolshops at 4.30pm and has been choreographed by Calderdale’s very own Handmade Productions: the same team responsible for Hebden Bridge’s now legendary annual Handmade Parade. Along with delightful costumed characters and spectacular moving puppets, there will be crafting workshops, live music and drumming on the day, as well at The Piece Hall’s ever-popular Christmas Market, featuring 50 local independent local artisan makers and traders.
