The Llandudno Victorian Extravaganza is held over the 3 days of the May Bank Holiday.

 

It’s a great family day out, especially when the weather is as good as it was on the Saturday this year.

 

A parade is held each day with bands, Victorian dress, traction engines and vintage transport. The whole of the main shopping street is closed off (asare many of the streets off), for fairground rides, stalls and entertainment.

 

I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking.

This is just one of the bands, there are a number of others, including one from Llandudnos’ twin town in France.
