The grounds of City Hall contained family entertainment with fairground games, fire breathers and children's theatre while wood and turf burning fire pods kept everyone warm. The parade wound its way from Writer's Square along Royal Avenue finishing at City Hall.
Crowds also enjoyed performances from the Lords of Lightning........

their performance is like a scene from Star Wars with two warriors duelling with bolts of electricity as their weapons. The air literally was electric as the energy snapped and crackled between the two chain mail clad protagonists.
Hopefully the dead enjoyed the day as much as the rest of us
