Chichester Lantern Parade

We watched the Chichester Latern Parade on Saturday June 27th, whilst visiting my parents for the weekend. It was the first time I had seen the parade and what a delight, the main street consists of four streets North, East South and West, with a band stand in the center and the cathedral is on West Street where the parade congregated for the finally.

Tremendous effort went into the bands, the making of the lanterns and the four giant figures. The cathedral was the back drop for a firework display whilst the bands played their pieces. The streets were filled with people and the weather made for a perfect evening.
