Tea and Dragons

Today was the Manchester Day Parade! Chris and I went along because I love the costumes and bright colours! It was an excellent parade with some fantastic efforts, clearly a lot of time and work had been put into the displays. The theme was The Sky’s The Limit so most of the displays were birds and butterflies, there were also several bees as they are a long standing Manchester symbol. Even the street cleaners were ‘dressed up’ to look like bees. Not entirely sure about all the flies :s. One of the first sections was all about Dante with scenes from the Divine Comedy, including a giant Beatrice and many demons, FANTASTIC! I also particularly liked the Chinese Dragon made of balloons, a moving Phoenix and the various dancing butterflies.
