After the ceremony of the Landing of the Oysters, immediately following was the Parade Party. It would be a big mistake to underestimate this little town, as seeing the parade, you'll see that everyone's involved. From young ones to old ones, everyone plays a part in this parade. And even though there are a lot of people, everyone seemed to be quite generous in terms of giving way to people in the back could still get a nice shot with their cameras. No pushing, very civilised. Well, enough said, let's take a look at the parade.

Being someone that despises crowds, for me to say that I had so much fun participating in this, really means something! If you happen to be around Kent during this time (July), try and see if you can catch this festival in action!
