This year we are pleased to announce that as part of the entertainment for the Animal Welfare Seafront Sunday this weekend we have a grand parade taking place at 3pm.

You can join in too as we are looking for volunteers to dress up in Animal Mascot suits or animal owners to walk their pets to help collect for the GSPCA.

The UIM 2014 class 3A and 3B World Powerboat Championships are currently being held in Guernsey and as part of their celebrations they have teamed up with us to have a parade of the boats including the winner along the seafront.

Joining the 20 powerboats will be many local motor bikes and their riders (some in animal costumes) as well as pet owners walking their pets and Giant Animal Mascots collecting for the GSPCA.

There will also be a DJ and the Samba Burros playing their drums to entertain the crowds as part of the parade.
