Postcard from Manchester Day 2013
The Manchester Day Parade was first conceived in 2010 with the ambition of celebrating creativity and diversity synonymous with Manchester. Since then, the Parade has grown every year and it is now a spectacular addition to the city’s calendar of events. Over 2,400 participants from 90 community and social groups across Manchester get involved each year, with an audience of more than 45,000 residents and visitors lining the streets as the Parade weaves its way through the city centre bringing an array of costumes, music, dance and incredible structures to the streets of Manchester.

The theme for the 2013 Manchester Day Parade, held on Sunday, 2 June, was ‘Wish You Were Here’; a celebration of place, people and identity, which inspired a host of diverse and creative ideas from participating groups.
