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.

Moonlight Catwalk

The eight-mile Moonlight Catwalk took place on Friday June 15, beginning at Claremont Primary School in Banner Farm Road, Tunbridge Wells at 10pm.
In aid of Hospice in the Weald, walkers were asked to dress to impress and come along for a night on the town. Surprises and treats were available along the way to keep everyone going, plus there was a free celebratory drinks and chocolate at the end.

Bloco Fogo were there to keep spirits high as the walkers gathered at the start and begin their warm up routines.
