Trip to KidzBiz and Enfield Christmas Parade of Light

On Sunday 2nd December a group of 70 young people from across Enfield Battalion came together for a trip to KidzBiz in Palmers Green and to take part in the Enfield Christmas Parade of Light in Enfield Town.

KidzBiz is a soft play centre with slides, ball pits, rope swings and more. The young people had the opportunity to spend lots of time in the play area, have a go at some craft activities if they wanted to slow down for a bit, and enjoy some lunch from McDonald's.

Following our time at KidzBiz we made our way to Enfield Town to take part in the Parade of Light. The event was taking place for the 8th year and usually happens on Advent Sunday. It featured a procession of over 30 floats, including a number of local youth and community organisations.

The Enfield Battalion float was led by the 10th Enfield's minibus which had been decorated with lights, was playing Christmas music and was pulling their trailer (decorated as Santa's sleigh). The young people all had glowsticks and battery powered lights to light themselves up and we also had the BB's giant inflatable balloon and sail flags. Our float certainly made an impression!

We had a great time at the parade and it was a good opportunity to publicise the BB name, with many spectators watching on. After the parade had finished there was a fireworks display to close the event.
