The convoy will travel along The Broadway, to the top of Ramsey Road and on to Hill Rise, arriving at the park at around 1pm, when the winning float will be announced.
Three arenas will be set up with a full line-up of entertainment from aerial act Above and Beyond, The Guitart School dancers, the CIFA Majorettes and Bootcooters.
There will also a live music stage with the St Ivo Steel Drum and Samba bands, David Sherrit, Tom Merson and Roses of Humanity as well as a fair, dog agility show, snacks and drinks, charity and trade stalls.
