Carnival 2009

July 4th saw the annual Godiva Carnival hit the streets and add some vibrant colour, lively music and energetic dancing to the city centre. Lady Godiva Processions of one form or another date back to the 17 C. and it's great to see the tradition kept alive by the latest generation of Coventrians.

This year's themes included Coventry's industrial and musical heritage, along with the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games which will of course be held in London. The parade reflected the cultural diversity of Coventry in a very positive way. Those in power in other parts of the country who seek "community cohesion" would do well to watch the videos below.

A big thank you to all those who took part and helped organise this years procession.
