Liberation Day
  • Guernsey
    Channel Islands
Remember and celebrate with island pride, because we must never forget the sacrifices made for our freedom during the German Occupation.

Community Cavalcade

Pick a spot on the Cavalcade route (map above) to watch over 100 military vehicles and motorbikes from the Guernsey Military Vehicle Group and classic cars from the Old Car Club.  The route will visit all nine parishes on Sunday 9 May.  

Liberation Day Cavalcade Director, Jeff Vidamour, said: “As larger celebrations could not happen this year, we wanted to find a way to visit as many islanders as possible whilst respecting Public Health’s advice. We are very excited to put on our first ever round-the-island Cavalcade, it’s a focal point of Liberation Day and we are pleased we have the opportunity to do it again this year. 

Deputy Sue Aldwell of the Committee for Education, Sport & Culture said “We encourage everyone to come out and watch from a spot on the route, wave flags and take pictures, the cavalcade may even go past your house so you can enjoy the display from the comfort of your own home. Keep an eye out for a variety of vehicles including a Dodge ambulance, a Daimler Dingo armoured car, and a Dodge weapons carrier.”
