"BearFest Goes To The Parade!" (27 minutes)

Coverage of the Bear Festival float in March's Holyoke St Patrick's Day parade ~ the first float from Easthampton to take part in 20 years!

Already showing on Channel 5, copies of the programme will be given to other local Community Access stations for cablecasting, also.

It gives a good 'feel' for the annual parade, plus you get to see the first of the completed Festival bears, "Paddy O'Bearden," and it's clear why our 'Performing Bear' was such a resounding success on the day.

Duration : 27 minutes.
