The Victory Parade

September 10th 2012

The sweat has hardly dried on Chris Martin's forehead and the Paralympians barely had any sleep from yesterday's amazing closing ceremony and they have to get up again for a victory parade through town. The Paralympians and the Olympians (except Philips Idowu) will be on an open top parade through London - the parade starts at Mansion House at 1.30pm, goes along Queen Victoria Street and Cannon Street up to St. Paul's Cathedral, then Fleet Street, Aldwych and The Strand, through Trafalgar Square, Admiralty Arch, The Mall and then ending at the Queen Victoria Memorial. The problem of course is that you may have to call in sick if you want to be there, this issue is compounded by the fact that your boss may catch you on TV. The Olympics and Paralympics have brightened up the summer of 2012 for Londoners and it will be a shame to see it go. The Parade is a fitting way to say thanks to the athletes who made the evenings in front of the BBC and Channel 4 so exciting.
