Jersey Battle of Flowers Day Parade

First staged in 1902 in celebration of a Royal Coronation the Jersey Battle of Flowers has since grown over the past century and more to become one of the largest floral carnivals in Europe and without doubt a major highlight in Jersey’s varied summer calendar of festivals and events.

Bloco Fogo were especially invited to take part for the first time this year and performed alongside 25 floats, dancers, stilt walkers and 4 other bands as part of both the day and moonlight parades. An amazing event with huge capacity crowds lining the main coast road in St Helier.  Copious amounts of streamers and confetti added to the carnival atmosphere as we paraded in front of the very welcoming crowds that cheered and clapped all the way.
Let's hope we are invited back again next year.

Thanks Jersey, it was a blast !
