    Default City Parade

    Great pictures but where was this advertised, not a lot of people knew it was happening. I would like have taken my granddaughter to see it.

    Nice Photos

    begs the question how can you have an orange march to celebrate CoC as they only celebrate their own culture and no one elses

    Wow.. excellant photos Robbo.. thanks for sharing..
    LOTS of people turned out to enjoy the music and parade, and this probably is mostly locals? Imagine when the Bank Holiday comes, and all the tourists join in too!!! Amazing pics.. Looks like the weather is nicer now ...

    ps.. wouldn't want to pay petrol prices and be in that traffic... LOL.. wowie..

    That comment brought it all back to me

    I was on this parade - incredible.

    Lovely weather, great reception (apart from the rankrunners).

    Loved every minute of it.

    Are there any more pictures?
