Parade gets South Shields’ summer off to a flying start

I enjoyed the parade this afternoon in South Shields, our “Geordie” version of a Mardi Gras, the weather was great, possibly too hot for some of the younger children, and the crowds were out in their thousands. The parade was well supported as people lined the streets from the Town Hall down Fowler Street and Ocean Road before it arrived in the Bents Park. We were also playing hosts to a group from one of our French twin towns, Noisy-le-Sec, so I hope they had a great time too.

I shot some video today, as well as taking stills, it was edited very roughly in a hurry to get it on here for tonight. I might return to the project at a later date to clean it up a bit, I’m not exactly Ridley Scott! Anyway, you might recognise one or two people that you know.

Perhaps some pictures tomorrow, or Monday, we are being kicked out of the house by some plasterers.
