South Shields Town Hall to Bents Park.
The biggest carnival of its kind in the North East, the South Tyneside Festival Summer Parade will take you on a journey to a far away galaxy as this year's theme is all about Space Fantasy.
Expect to be hugely impressed with amazing costumes, fantastic floats and fabulous song and dance as the parade makes its way from South Shields Town Hall to Bents Park at South Shields Seafront, where the fun will continue with even more entertainment and activities all afternoon long.
The parade, with more than 2,000 participants involved, will feature giant avatar heads, aliens flying over planets, winged creatures, spaceships and lots of sci-fi characters, all of which (and more) will be set to a backdrop of colour, fun and a vibrant carnival atmosphere.
