Maidenhead High Street will come alive with hundreds of mythical creature-inspired lanterns on Saturday.
More than 1,200 people are expected to take part in the annual lantern parade, run by Norden Farm Centre for the Arts.
The evening will also feature entertainment from The Bollywood Brass Band, Beatroots Samba Band and Reading’s community drumming group.
Norden Farm will be working with award-winning community arts charity Same Sky, which has helped create the last five parades.
The family event is free, and the live music starts at 4.30pm before the parade departs from outside Maidenhead Town Hall at 5pm.
Each year, Norden Farm raises more than £15,000 to be able to produce the parade, which is supported by the Spoore, Merry and Rixman Foundation, The Prince Philip Trust Fund, The Louis Baylis (Maidenhead Advertiser) Charitable Trust, RBWM Kidwells Park Trust and The Shanly Foundation.
Paramedics were called to the scene of a medical emergency in Maidenhead on Monday morning (June 27).
A teenager who died after getting into difficulty in the Jubilee River has been described as a ‘gentle giant’ in a tribute from his school.
