Flag of United Kingdom  , Channel Islands,
Saturday, August 14, 2010

Every year Jersey celebrates one of the biggest flower festivals in Europe...the Battle of Flowers. Now much to my housemates and my disappointment it did not mean we could have a massive fight in the streets with bunches of flowers. We got some rather interesting looks from the locals when we suggested it. The battle involves flower covered floats moving along the length of the seafront in a massive thursday afternoon parade (followed by a Friday moonlight parade). Each float is entered by the different parishes on the island & this years overall winner displayed a brilliant japanese theme.
