Thousands of people lined the streets of Aylesbury on Saturday (2 July) to watch and enjoy this year’s ‘fizztastic’ WhizzFizzFest parade – which featured children from local schools.
WhizzFizzFest is a family-friendly literary and arts festival that has been delighting visitors for many years.
As well as the spectacular parade, lots of families enjoyed meeting well-known children’s authors Lauren Child and Chris Smith, who were on hand to sign their books and chat to visitors.
In addition, there were the much-loved festival favourites, including:
interactive arts activities
original commissioned performances and events
Brush Parties at the Discover Bucks Museum also went down a storm, resulting in some marvellous masterpieces being created.
Clive Harriss, Cabinet Member for Culture & Leisure, said:
“Thank you to everyone who came along to this year’s event and to all the partners involved in making the day a huge success.
“Thank you also to the fabulously talented acts who took part in the Live Art Competition and the Young Artists’ Showcase. Today the WhizzFizzFest – next step, Britain’s Got Talent!
“Don’t forget that WhizzFizzFest isn’t quite over yet, as the Book Club for Super-Spies show – which launched on Saturday in Aylesbury Library – will continue its journey across the county by visiting other libraries throughout July. For dates, venues and tickets, click here
