VIDEO: Tiaras and tutus a plenty as princesses held big parade

MINI princesses adorned in tiaras and tutus gathered for a world record attempt at the weekend.

Daughters, mothers, and some fathers, put on their best gowns for a princess parade and sing-a-long at County Hall on Saturday in an aim to help beat a record of 351 princesses singing together.

The song ‘Let it go’ from the film ‘Frozen’ was sung by 139 princesses.

Chris Allwood, who organised the event, said although no record was broken, the turn out was excellent for a ‘very cold and crisp morning’.

“It was lovely to see all those smiling faces,” he said, “the children loved the ‘Frozen’ theme.”

The event was held in aid of Sussex Snowdrop Trust which provides care at home for children with life-threatening illnesses.

Chris said: “I think it’s important to support a charity which provides home care for children who are terminally ill or have life threatening illnesses after they’ve been to hospital. To donate to them at Christmas is really important.”

Certificates, jewellery, tiaras and a shaving kit were handed out to the best dressed.

Winners included Rapunzel, Princess Leia, and a dad called ‘Princess Purple’.

The gathering kicked off the ‘Taste Festival’ which saw food stalls providing a selection of the world’s foods in the County Hall car park throughout the weekend.
