On Saturday 15th of June we are going to be holding our great big SNUG Sponsored fancy dress parade! It’s going to be a wonderful afternoon for the whole family

We invite you to grab all your friends and family, get dressed up and come along and join in some wholesome fun, all for a great cause! Everyone is invited!

The big aim of the day is to raise as much money as possible for SNUG so we can ensure families who have sick and preterm babies in Devon are provided with the support and resources they need to help to see them through difficult times, but we are going to have LOTS of fun in the process.

Fancy Dress Competition!

As part of the fancy dress parade, you will have the option to enter the competition – ooooo – along side this entry you will also get a free raffle ticket. Every child will receive a certificate for entering the parade, and prizes will be given to the BEST DRESSED BABY, BEST DRESSED CHILD and the BEST DRESS FAMILY – so what are you going to wear? Whether it’s shop bought, or hand made – we can’t wait to see your costume!

What is happening when?

1pm –  When you first arrive, you will be asked to sign in, then you will have the option to have a lovely family photo taken, along with the  chance to have a delicious cream tea and play some fun little games

1:45pm –  Street heat performance and the parade starts! (we will be completing a loop of the quay and making our way back to the transit shed.)

3pm – Parade will circle back round and end where it started. Raffle will be drawn ( FINGERS CROSSED), fancy dress competition results will be announced, and there will be lots of opportunity for more fun, games and cream tea!

4pm – Home time! Thank you so much for coming!
