Falkland Stampede Set To Drop Annual Parade

The Falkland Stampede will go ahead without its parade this year.

Parade Organizer Jackie Pipe tells us that there's a few issues at hand, saying "I just find it harder and harder every year to close the Highway, as it's the main thoroughfare through the town - and we're short volunteers. I've stepped down after doing it for years, and nobody stepped in, so."

As for the potential of a future revival, Pipe says "Maybe if somebody steps up, but still the Highway closure is a problem."

The rest of the event is still a go for May Long weekend.
