Pick a spot on the Cavalcade route to watch over 100 military vehicles and motorbikes from the Guernsey Military Vehicle Group and classic cars from the Old Car Club. The route will visit all nine parishes on Sunday 9 May.
Liberation Day Cavalcade Director, Jeff Vidamour, said: “As larger celebrations could not happen this year, we wanted to find a way to visit as many islanders as possible whilst respecting Public Health’s advice. We are very excited to put on our first ever round-the-island Cavalcade, it’s a focal point of Liberation Day and we are pleased we have the opportunity to do it again this year.
Deputy Sue Aldwell of the Committee for Education, Sport & Culture said “We encourage everyone to come out and watch from a spot on the route, wave flags and take pictures, the cavalcade may even go past your house so you can enjoy the display from the comfort of your own home. Keep an eye out for a variety of vehicles including a Dodge ambulance, a Daimler Dingo armoured car, and a Dodge weapons carrier.”
The Liberation Day Committee are grateful to local businesses who have shown their support for Liberation Day, with JT supporting this year’s cavalcade.
Tamara O Brien, Deputy Managing Director, JT said: “We are extremely pleased to be able to support this unique island-wide Cavalcade for The Liberation Day celebrations this year. It’s important to us to be part of community events that not only bring people together but inspire change and innovation.
“Whether you are taking part or enjoying the spectacle either watching live online or in-person by the roadside, as we commemorate and celebrate one of the biggest days in our Island’s history, it promises to be an event not to be missed.’’
