The parade has been a highlight of the Easter holidays for many years but Falkirk Delivers has confirmed it is taking a break.

Falkirk BID manager Alex Fleming said: “There is only so much budget to go round and we thought we’d press the pause button for a while as we have plans for some new events for the town.

“We have some food and drink events that will be happening in the summer and a focus on our history and heritage.

The fun event was always popular with families

“However, we definitely haven’t said goodbye to Pirates and Princesses, which has been a well-loved event.”
