Manchester Day 2012 – The Calm Before The Parade

12/06/2012 § 4 Comments

It’s time for sun, music and the carnival at Manchester Day 2012.

For the last three years Manchester City Centre has turned into a carnival one day every June, with the Manchester Day Parade celebrating Manchester, its history and all. This year the theme was ‘The Sky’s The Limit’ and it certainly delivered, it was bigger, bolder and livelier than ever before.

These photos are from the waiting/holding area for all the floats and performers for the parade on Liverpool Road. The public were able to walk down the street in the hours before the parade officially started, and were also able to get up close to the floats even before the party really began, which was great.

Enjoy the photos and get in that party mood, you know you want to. Click the image to enlarge them.

Feel free to leave comments, next time there will be photos from the actual parade route, see you then.

Thanks

Steven
