    Coronation – Party in the Park

    May 7, 2023
    Butimamba Park
    'REIGN' on Lions' Parade!! The only rain on the Lions Party in the Park was the toast to the new UK King, Charles III Reign!! On a perfect May day, over 400 locals enjoyed a packed afternoon of fun and entertainment. The toast to the King with cava and delicious cakes was followed by the National anthem. The stalls were numerous and varied and, like the park, were resplendent in red white and blue! La Cala favourites the Drang band heralded the start of the afternoon. Followed by 11 local bands and acts including Spice Girls tribute band Girl Power who belted out several hits!! Eleven entries for the Cake Bake Off were judged by Legends Show Bar Andrea and Paul. They featured a model of a castle - and a gin infused Union Flag! A lively feature was the inclusion of the Escuela de Danza NV. This Ukrainian dance troop travelled from Malaga to join us as a thank you for the Lions' immediate response last year, both financially and with an emergency consignment of warm clothing, at the beginning of the war. Lion, Sandie Tavendale, who organised the day, expressed her thanks to everyone who helped her make it such a Right Royal success!! The money raised by the Lions, 3000€, will enable them to continue their help to deserving causes in the area.
