Enjoy the Ride
A pedal powered Carnival parade full of vibrant colours and Captain Cook adventure, created to celebrate the arrival of the Tour de Yorkshire toIn Middlesbrough 2016.
The spectacular parade brought together community costume groups, professional performers and musicians with a cavalcade of decorated bikes and cycling enthusiasts from across the Borough. School and community groups from across Middlesbrough worked with carnival artists to make costumes ready to join the parade on the day, inspired by Captain Cook and the ships from his famous voyages, the procession celebrated the sights and sounds of the far flung places Cook visited, using their traditional colours, patterns and motifs to take the audience around the world and back again.
It was lovely for our students to take part in the event they all enjoyed the loud music, bright colours and crowds of people; it offered a lovely social and sensory experience
