There'll be a fireworks finale to this year's Battle of Flowers Christmas Parade.

After bad weather forced the cancellation of the Christmas lights switch-on in St Helier last month, organisers of the Battle Christmas Parade are confident the event will go ahead on Sunday 11 December.

They are hoping this year's spectacle will bigger than ever, and have added a fireworks display to the programme.

20 festive-themed floats will take to the streets to delight and entertain the crowds.

Many of them took part in the summer parades, and have been redecorated to bring Christmas cheer to families who missed out on the celebrating the annual turning-on of the lights in town.

We’re delighted to announce that extra piece of sparkle to our festive parade with a wonderful fireworks display over the Harbour area and would like to thank the Parish of St Helier for helping us to facilitate this.

Not only will the parade be a great start to the Christmas Countdown but it will be a lovely finale to the evening”." - Jackie Donald, Event Director.

The parade - which is free - starts at 5.15pm at the FerrySpeed depot at Elizabeth Harbour.

The procession will travel towards Maritime House and Rue de L’eau, via the overpass and Liberty Wharf, past the Pomme D’Or and up past Liberty Bus Station, finishing at Castle Street junction.
