The first flower festival was in 1959 and it's been an annual event since. But number 54 this year will be the last one. The council can no longer help to fund this spectacular event in the current economic climate - such a shame.
This years event was also masked by the recent bad weather. Poor growing conditions have meant only 200 bags of tulips have been collected for the Lincolnshire festival compared to 1,020 in 2012. Other things such foil and rafias have been used this year to make the floats look beautiful.
People come from miles around to watch the parade and view the floats and see all the hard work that has gone into the event. Lots to see and do and a fun day out.
Here are some snapshots we took on Saturday. This years theme was "Lets Celebrate"

A big well done to all the volunteers and those who took part in the event, it really was a magnificent sight to see in the streets of Spalding.
