The 16th annual Thames Festival drew around 800,000 people to the waterside between Westminster Bridge and Tower Bridge to enjoy free arts, performance and entertainment this weekend.

A 6m high Lady Godiva led the Night Carnival which culminated in a firework finale that was beamed around the world thanks to fortuitous synchronicity with the Paralympics Closing Ceremony.

Search the Londonist Flickrpool for 'thames festival' for many more wonderful photos.
