  • Battle of Flowers

    A couple from the Battle of Flowers, Jersey.

    All the floats are covered with thousands of flowers (60-70 thousand on the larger floats). There are months of preparation on the design and building of the float and then burning the midnight oil before the parade to get the floats covered.

    The main event is held during the day and there is then a Midnight Parade the next day, which is where these few are from.

    The showboat looks superb. It must be fantastic to see all the hard work that has been put into these.

      Hi, Yes the Show boat was fantastic, it won the first prize for the moonlight parade and also the float with the most atmosphere. The boat was rocking on the parade with everyone on it dancing.

        I've been to Jersey a few times over the years, but I've never managed to be there for the Battle of the Flowers.
        Thanks for sharing the photos

        Its a shame that humans dont come with autofocus, like cameras do!
