Children's Procession

Lots of local colour as the town and its tots turn out to put on a show in the spring

Non-Fiction 1897 1 mins


The children are the stars of this pageant, but people of all ages have come out to celebrate. Judging by the young lady in the blossom-covered float, it could be springtime, which would make her the Queen of the May, with all her pretty attendants. The youngsters are dressed up like their parents in professional uniforms. There are juvenile farmers, and petite policemen. There may well be tiny butchers, bakers and candlestick-makers too. And don't miss the young lady with the enormous head.

The camera is cleverly placed to the side of the route to give the audience a good view of the floats and costumes as the procession goes by.
