Another year, another fantastic parade. The parade was huge this year. Twice the length of previous years. I think the only dissapointment was that the Liverpool Samba Band didn't stop for their normal 10 minute end performance. They're always a crowd pleaser. I was at a discussion the other week and one of the points raised was that the culture year isn't providing events for kids. This parade was probably 75% full of people under 20. They've clearly been working on it a while too. Like Streets Ahead it took to the streets and town was lined with people from start to finish. Old, young, middle aged, male, female, and everything. A great display.
