London has shown it knows how to throw a party now and again but sometimes the best part of any party is the wrap up. On Sunday (July 29), Pride London Festival (LPF) activities were capped off in fine fashion with the 18th annual Pride London Parade.
Thousands came out to watch as it wound its way from the Western Fair District grounds, across Queen’s Avenue and then up Wellington Street to Victoria Park.
