Parades

Cavalcade’s parades are a fascinating, entertaining and memorable glimpse into our wonderful past. This is a unique opportunity to see historical gowns as they were worn, along with hearing snippets from the life of the original wearer. Each era is introduced by our compere who will also tell us of the conventions, etiquette and social history surrounding events of that era. Our models wear original accessories to complement the gowns and our hairdresser reproduces hairstyles of the period. The parade is accompanied by our pianist playing music of the era.

Cavalcade regularly travels to city and regional areas for Parades. Presented for an audience of 200 or more, our Parades are suitable for all ages and provide approximately 90 minutes of entertainment and reminiscence.

 

Cavalcade's first parade

 

A New Look: A New Generation 1945-1975

The Cavalcade of History & Fashion will take you on a nostalgic journey of the ‘Baby Boomers’ years from 1945 to 1975. The parade will start with a post WWII wedding and onto the glamorous 1950s and a visit to the Royal Easter Show when the country comes to the city. On through the swinging 1960s when women gained more freedom both in dress and spirit. Then the active 1970s of youthful enthusiasm completing the cycle with a formal wedding. See the fashions how they change through the years.
