Solstice Parade

This evening's Night of the Beasts Winter Solstice Parade in New Cross was a lot of fun with about 100 people of all ages taking part, many of them in improvised animal costumes. One contingent started out from New Cross library, joining up with the rest outside the Telegraph pub on Dennetts Road. From there the procession made it's way through Telegraph Hill Park and around the nearby streets, ending up at the Hill Station Cafe in Kitto Road for an impromptu party.

(my camera was playing up so I didn't get pictures of some of the costumes, including the big ones at the front - if you've got any good pictures of them let me know)
