Southend on sea carnival on the seafront 2011

All by accident, I stumbled upon the Southend on sea carnival on Saturday night (20th August 2011).  I was having dinner overlooking Eastern Esplanade, when we heard it coming along. 

So glad we did too, as there was a huge effort clearly involved in the dress, activities, music and vehicles this year. 

From ‘Cotton eye Joe’ to dance music, the parade had something for everyone and seemed particularly lively.  I had no idea it started in Chalkwell, so it is a long parade and is on every year.  I have seen it before, but it seemed like there were many more floats this year to me. 

A great effort for everyone involved!
