Celebrating Manchester

Posted on Updated on

Yesterday was the fifth year that Mancunians celebrated “Manchester Day”

The day boasts a mile long parade of various community groups, organisations and clubs through the streets of Manchester.

Attended by a record breaking 20,000, the Manchester Day parade was a successful event. A gathering of Mancunians and visitors to the great city for the one day of the year where we can toast our diverse communities and remember how we prevailed during the riots of 2011.

Parading down the streets of Manchester were
a combination of vibrant colours, music and dancing.

Each of the squares provided their own entertainment whether it be music, ale tents, face painting or food stalls. The Manchester Day had something for everyone at Albert Square, St Ann’s Square and Exchange Square.

It makes me proud to be an adopted Mancunian.
