A selection of the hand built floats, each covered in thousands of individaully attached flowers, real or paper, depending on the class of entry. The Jersey Battle of Flowers is the high point in the summer holiday calender in Jersey, UK, when these floats, created by teams of volunteers over many months battle it out for honour. They are covered in tens of thousands of flower heads, (some have 80,00) each individually stuck on by teams of helpers, working long hours, and traditionally through the whole night preceeding the "Battle" itself, a spectacular moving parade of bands, dances, community groups, as well as the floats themselves, moving along the closed route known as "Victoria Avenue". Here a selection of them can be seen after the main "Battle of Flowers " day-time event, they are now being prepared for the "Moonlight Parade" where they are lit up for a night time pageant. The knowledgeable amongst you will recognise the tell-tale cloud paths and human movement, which has meant some considerable manual adjustment prior to stitching and uploading.
