DISS DIAMOND JUBILEE:
Plans Are In Full Swing to Make Diss the Place To Be To Celebrate The Queens Diamond Jubilee This Year
Plans are now finally in full swing for the Jubilee celebrations in Diss to mark sixty years since the coronation of HRH Queen Elizabeth II on the 2nd of June 1953. It is traditional for many people to get together and mark the occasion with different events nationwide and this year Diss will do the same! On Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd June 2012 the park will be filled with hundreds of people all celebrating the Diamond Jubilee.
On Saturday 2nd June we will be holding a party in the park which will have something for everyone, there will be craft stalls with some jubilee memorabilia but also local stands selling anything from cakes to bags. There will also be entertainment for everyone with bands such as Backstreet, Walkway, Twisted Piglet and The Cataclysmics and a stage where a number of local dancing groups will performing throughout the day. There will also be traditional games stalls such as a coconut shy and also a bouncy castle with park radio attending to provide music for the day.
On Sunday 3rd June Diss will be host to one of the largest big lunches on record we are going to have local restaurants on the park marketing their establishment and serving some of their food to the public. The day however is not just about eating lunch with your neighbours but also having fun with others in the community and to do this we will offer loads of free events where the community can get involved, events such as a park marathon, three legged races and a mobility scooter obstacle course so there is something for everyone. On the day there will also be food based competitions such as cake baking contests however look out for more information in the near future. There will also be a puppet show from Poz and a bouncy castle!
To culminate two full days of celebrations there will be a fireworks display on the mere which will be free to everyone and it will be a great way to end what will have been two excellent days of celebrations
