Burnley man Brad Pounder, co-organiser of the event along with Julian Smith and Liam Kilbride, said he cannot wait for Saturday.

He said: “We are really looking forward to the event this weekend. There is a lot more going on than previous years.

“There is more for the kids and the parade is huge this year, local clubs and charities have their own floats.

“It’s a family friendly event where parents can enjoy themselves and feel assured that the kids won’t get bored.

“The wrestling show will be a highlight and we are looking forward to local singer Leonie Parker, who will be singing some Mowtown classics. Everyone knows her in the town and this might be one of her last performances.

“It is a nice atmosphere and everyone is here for a good time. There is something here and a style of music for everyone to enjoy.”

In previous years, more than 5,000 people attended the event. Tickets cost £5 and children under 16 go free.
