London — New Year's Day parade
I went to the parade on New Year's Day. It went past for about 3 hours with only a few short breaks, and included (among other things) 23 different marching bands from various high schools across the USA. There were also various dignitaries and societies, floats from some of the London boroughs (although quite a few of them never showed up, despite being on the programme!), vintage cars, Minis, motorbikes, giant inflatable cartoon characters, cheerleaders, morris dancers, miniature steam engines, clowns, buses and an excellent country dance group from Texas.
