Manchester Day Parade 2012

Celebrate the Manchester Day Parade!
Sunday 10 June

Manchester Day is an annual event that celebrates everything great about the city. It is a day for families, residents and visitors to get together and celebrate all things Mancunian that have helped Manchester to become one of the world's most iconic cities.

Last year over 45,000 people enjoyed the sunshine and watched the parade as it snaked its way through the city centre. Some 3,000 people participated in the parade, including over 90 Manchester charities, community groups and companies that brought alive the ‘Voyage of Discovery' theme in extravagant fashion. Led by a giant galleon, the parade also saw a massive Gulliver, a giant dragonfly, space rockets, mythical creatures and musical figures parade through the city centre. Bands and choirs helped entertain the crowds as the city was flooded with a sea of colour and noise.

The theme of this year's parade is 'The Sky's the limit - a celebration of heroic achievements', inspiring a host of diverse and creative ideas from participating groups

Manchester is a city of heroes, and the 2012 Manchester Day Parade will celebrate the heroic achievements of men and women in science and technology, music, culture and the arts, industry, sport, and the natural world

Come along, get involved and show what Manchester means to you. This year promises to be bigger and better than ever before, so make sure you see the city come alive for the parade once again.
