“It has been a fun project, especially when I know the children of Summerland have enjoyed it so much as they walk down the roads in procession, showing off their costumes and watching the dancers do their routine to Thriller,” he said.

He added that the event had received support from businesses and volunteers.

“A parade like this couldn’t happen without the support of volunteers who supply the music, vehicles, insurance, and food and drink at the end of the parade,” he said.
