Manchester Day Parade 2012 :: Shared Description

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 2012 Manchester Day Parade, held on Sunday, 10 June, was ‘The Sky’s the Limit… a celebration of heroic achievements’ which inspired a host of fantastical creations and captivating stories, delighting the crowds. From a giant air hostess, a superhero baby and a giant runner, to winged creatures and planes, groups from all over the city let their imaginations loose on the theme. Samba dancers, brass bands and bagpipe players helped entertain the crowds as the city was flooded with a sea of colour and noise.
