The Lord Mayor’s procession, the pinnacle of the Lord Mayor’s Celebration weekend, of course – a highlight in countless families’ calendars and another success story this year.

Thousands of people of all ages lined the route to watch the array of colourful and creative floats parade through Norwich.

The parade, which travelled from Newmarket Road to Palace Street via St Stephens Street, Castle Meadow and Tombland, saw spectators climbing any incline they could to catch a glimpse of the magnificent parade.

More than 50 weird and wonderful carnival floats were created by a large variety of different organisations for the special city celebration.

And the Lord Mayor of Norwich, Judith Lubbock and the Sheriff of Norwich, and former Norfolk coroner, William Armstrong were part of the procession to choose this year’s winning float.

Ballerina Cerys King, five, from Thorpe, was dressed as a pink elephant on a dance float.

Her proud grandparents, mum and dad were all in the crowd to cheer the twinkle toes on.
