Group DescriptionShare your photo's of the Manchester Day Parade which burst onto the city's streets on 20 June 2010. The parade, which involved over 1800 participants from 90 community and social groups across Manchester, wowed an audience more than 40,000 residents and visitors, who lined the streets as it weaved its way through the city centre. Spectators witnessed an amazing celebration of Manchester's unique creativity and diversity, to a theme of 'Out of this World'.
The parade was brought to life by groups and individuals from across the city who worked with highly skilled professional artists coordinated by Walk the Plank. The end result was an incredible parade of beautiful structures and vibrant costumes which were pushed, wheeled, cycled or walked to pulsating music and dance.
With its many benefits for the city, the parade brings communities, artists and businesses together to create something truly special for Manchester.
Share any photographs you took wether you were part of the parade or just having fun, we'd be especially interested in seeing any pictures of you creating and preparing any of the fabulous floats and costumes used on the day.
2011's Manchester Day Parade's theme is 'A Voyage of Discovery' and takes place on Sunday 19 June. So make a note in your diary, and make your very own voyage to the city to discover the biggest event of the year.
And don't forget your camera..
