It tipped it down but still the floats and the fireworks enlivened the streets of the City for the Lord Mayor's Show (though we wonder what the camel thought about the rain). Thanks to our brilliant friends in the Londonist Flickrpool, you can experience the parade even if you weren't there.

Thanks for using my images Rachel, glad you liked them.

It was a great parade, in spite of the weather. As for the fireworks, Primrose Hill isn't very good as a viewing site, thanks to some new buildings that block the view. It's still excellent for a night view of London, but, for the fireworks, I recommend you go elsewhere.

thank u so much ladies and gentlemen for coming to central london and enjoying our show

Mounted rider

No photos of any of the main floats, which were the mounted riders, who faced the most arduous task of all. Boring pictures of boring people.
