An explosion of colour, music and fun for all the family, The Umbrella Parade is a firm Hastings Fat Tuesday favourite, and all you need to take part is a decorated umbrella. The parade route is from The Stade to St Mary in the Castle and features a host of second line brass bands adding a New Orleans flavour, including the Brass Funkeys, Mariachi Las Adelitas, Sambalanca, Dende along with the irrepressible Dr Savage.
