This years parade, now rebranded as a pageant, turned out to be pretty good. It was cold, wet, raining, grey dull flat skies and I feared for the worst. But it was actually a good show. I went early this year to get some candids before the event started which turned out to be quite productive. I’ll post those during the week. My favourite group in the parade are of course the Samba Dancers. They’re just so full of life and colour. I really didn’t expect to see them this year given the weather. Would you dance around town for nearly 2 hours in hot pants and a bra in the rain?
