Lisburn Mayor’s Parade 2012

Lisburn hosted its 2012 Mayor’s Parade and Carnival today featuring an array of breathtaking carnival floats, hundreds of carnival performers and flamboyant dancers displaying a mixture of sport and culture themes igniting Lisburn’s streets. I wasn’t at all focused (excuse the pun) on taking photos.

The Mayor’s Parade is the largest free civic event hosted in the City. Lots of work go in to preparing floats, training children from around the city and managing the post parade carnival in Wallace Park. Click on a thumbnail to view large.

Just like the previous three years we were (un)fortunate enough to win three gold fish at the Carnival. Such living prizes are tears on a time delay trigger we just will them to live long enough to be forgotten.

I should apologise that the photos of this year’s event aren’t great, somedays it just doesn’t click and this was such a day. All photos taken with the Fujifilm X-Pro1 and 18mm lens. Click to view previous parades : Lisburn Mayor’s Parade 2011, Lisburn Mayor’s Parade 2010.
