In pictures: Lord Mayor's Procession
Thousands flocked to the streets of Norwich to witness The Lord Mayor's Procession on Saturday, 11 July, 2009. The City of Norwich Pipe Band led the way. Photographs by David Keller.
The Lord Mayor of Norwich for 2009-2010, Councillor Evelyn Collishaw, followed behind the pipe band to lead the main procession as it started to leave Newmarket Road.
The first part of the procession was led by walking entertainers, with many schools and community groups looking to raise money for charity.
Ahoy there! The mean pirates were on board one of the main floats at the procession, with smoke bellowing from the ship's cannons and swords being swung high.
BBC Norfolk had their own float, with Kate Riley and Edd Smith leading the fun, and Stephen Bumfrey broadcasting live from the bus.
Got ya! Fancy dress was definitely on the agenda during the carnival, as the floats moved their way towards the city's historic Tombland.
The Norwich City Football Club cheerleaders were showing off their moves to the audience as they looked to promote a new season at Carrow Road.
There were many monsters and giant figurines being driven through the streets of Norwich. The procession was part of a host of Lord Mayor's Celebrations that stretched from Thursday, 9 - Sunday, 12 July, 2009.
Alice in Wonderland and the Queen of Hearts waved to the crowd whilst collecting money for a host of important local charities.
As the procession ground to a halt at around 8pm, people were still in high spirits with the funfair and fireworks to look forward to later in the evening.
