Manchester Day 2012 – The Floats and The History

19/06/2012 § Leave a comment

Manchester has a huge history and the parade celebrated it.

For the 100th birthday of Alan Turing, there was a float celebrating his life and his most famous creation, the Baby Computer. There were also floats to celebrate cancer hospital The Christie and FC United, a football team set up by Manchester United fans angry at the Glazer buyout of the club in 2003.

One of the biggest recent events in Manchester was the Commonwealth Games (held in 2002) and volunteers from the ocassion celebrated its anniversary by walking in the parade. As usual click the images to enlarge them.

I hope you enjoy the photos, feel free to leave comments, till next time.

Thanks

Steven
