Agiant puppet named Godiva will parade through Northampton on Tuesday.
There will be entertainment galore from noon before the 33ft attraction arrives at about 3.30pm.
In the Market Square people can enjoy a big screen showing the making of Godiva, a balloon street act company, a music show combining mime and robotics and acrobats.
Once Godiva has reached the town and dismounted her horse, the ‘Boot Parade’ will set off from Northampton Museum and Art Gallery at about 4.30pm.
A wild and energetic troupe of dancers and performers will weave their way to the market, via the Guildhall, carrying a pair of bespoke size 72 riding boots made especially for Godiva by Northamptonshire boot maker Horace Batten.
The parade will include corset-wearing Morris Ladies, the Wicker Maidens, belly dancers and Ministry of Bicycles.
There will be rolling road closures to make way for the parade in St Giles Terrace, St Giles Street and Wood Hill between 5pm and 6pm.
Northampton Borough Council hopes to keep disruption to a minimum but is advising motorists to plan a different route in and out of the town centre to avoid any delays.
On-street car parking on St Giles Street and Wood Hill will also be restricted during the procession.
