A Potted History
The parade has been staged every year since 1976. It had always been a main focus of the summer programme of activities for tourists and the local community alike and at one point was the largest parade of its type in Europe.
Over the years the event has supported many local community groups with donations from the collection, as well as creating numerous arts and community projects through participation.
The parade was first organised by Cleethorpes Borough Council and subsequently North East Lincolnshire Council, but in 2007 the Council decided that they would no longer fund or manage the event. North East Lincs Tourist Forum knew that with a lot of hard work they could get the carnival back on the road and decided to keep it going. A small willing group of volunteers set up a non-profit making Cleethorpes Events Ltd and have managed the event ever since.
