Record-breaking Moonlight Parade

Watch the moonlight parade

A record crowd turned out to watch the 2009 Moonlight Parade in Jersey, according to organisers of the annual Battle of Flowers event.

They said about 16,000 people flocked to Victoria Avenue on Friday evening - the biggest attendance in the history of the parade.

Battle chairman Tony Perkins said the event now appeared to be more popular than the grand parade.

Battle of Flowers regularly attracts some 30,000 spectators each year.
