In Pictures: The Mayor’s Thames Festival 2012

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.
