I didn't think I'd be able to see anything along the main parade route so decided to photography the marshalling area and then see if I could find a spot to watch the parade. I couldn't get anywhere on the main drag - it was packed - but managed to squeeze in on the last block of the marshalling area, just before they turned onto the parade route. It was great spot as most groups were already marching by the time they reached me. They also slowed as they approached the turn.
