London: New Years Day Parade

What will you be doing on New Year’s Day then? Lunch with the family, a good movie, relaxing? They all sound rather good but we, as a family will be doing none of those. No, we will be up in London in the freezing cold, outside!
But don’t worry, it will be fab and it is through choice. So if you are lost for something to do on New Year’s day, then why don’t you join us and thousands of others in central London for the London Parade where you can watch 10,000 performers from across the world and join half a million other spectators.  The fabulous thing is that because it covers such a wide area of London, it is not too busy and even out little toddlers could see fine last year and the other big plus point, it is free!

2012 will be the 25th year of the parade and they expect it to be bigger and better than any other year.  It really is a spectacle and the highlight for us was watching all the American marching bands with their fantastic costumes, routines and inflatables.  Of course there are also the superb floats from all the boroughs of London, the horse and carts, trains, motorbikes and every other type of transport imaginable too! The parade starts at 11.45am and runs until about 3pm, so it will keep you entertained for hours, lets just pray it does not rain like last year or worse still snow!

Anyway enough from me, check out some of the pictures we took last year and click on the link and see for yourself if you fancy a trip to London on New Years Day.  We will be staying over on NYE, so we are ready nice and early after a Maccy D's breakfast - we know how to live!

Look at the size of that inflatable!

This is not a sponsored post, we just had a great day last year and I figure that I had never heard of this before so many local people probably have not either.
