West-End Festival


Some photos of the first of the summer festivals here in Glasgow. This the West-End Festival
It's now in it's 10th year and has grown year on year to become a pretty large festival now. The parade started in the Botanic Gardens with the usual array of Dragons.






Unfortunately one had to fight it's way through the copius number of trees in this beautiful park















Others just joined the parade!!














But Kate knew where to find the fun!!




And survivied
to tell the tale!!














It was a really good day and showed Glasgow at it's best with the Byres Rd. being closed to traffic and being taken up with bands, street musicians and other entertaing acts. I wish Glasgow could maintain the festive atmosphere the whole year round but on the other hand we would probably all become complacent and some would even get sick of it. There is no pleasing everybody!!
