It was lovely to see my daughter and granddaughters enjoying the parade. The theme this year was 'Good Day Sunshine!' and the parade had sections with different animals and birds. My family were owls, with rather lovely white, silver and gold costumes and elaborate headdresses, all of which they had decorated themselves.
I've blanked out their little friend's face, as I don't have specific permission to post his image.
The end of their section had some young stilt walkers - very competent. I'm pretty sure I couldn't learn to balance like that (even when I was younger!)
