Jersey Battle of Flowers Moonlight Parade

The Jersey Battle of Flowers is 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 in the Moonlight Parade in their Night Costume of Yellow trousers, black T-shirt and on this occasion swapping their famous red stripe to a white one. All our drums were lit up as were all of the floats as we paraded along the main coast road in St Helier.  All culminating in an amazing laser show set to music. Even after a couple of hours performing we managed to perform for another 30 minutes or so as the crowds left the arena.

With some great feedback from all concerned, especially the booker and the audience let's hope we are invited back again next year.




















































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 !
