On Sunday morning, over 4000 people dressed up in Santa costumes gathered together at Glasgow’s George Square for the annual fund raising Santa Dash event and I went along to watch for the first time.
Went along to Glasgow Green for the fireworks display in town this year to see what it was like since I’ve never been.
I remember the city council here used to run the Bonfire Night event at George Square and people needed tickets to enter the premises. Here it’s free and there’s plenty of space.
Hope you guys and girls had/have a good night out for those of you who celebrate Bonfire Night!
Mine was…. Quite a mix of events. First time I popped into town to watch the fireworks but, can’t miss a good opportunity to experiment with my DSLR camera ^^;
Yes, I know it’s passed. Wasn’t really going to make a post about the annual Mid-Autumn Festival but, then I remembered this shot of some cakes my parents brought back from their trip to London on the day. Cute, eh? Almost £3 (US$5) each… Lots of cream skilfully decorated on top of a slice of roll. Tasted pretty good.
Anyway, hope you had a good night for those of you who celebrated. I’m kind of sick of eating moon cakes even if they’re those flavoured refigerated ones ^^;
The annual Merchant City Festival 2009 just ended yesterday and it also happened to be the first time I attended. It was a good opportunity to give my DSLR a whirl. Fortunately, it wasn’t raining so I managed to get some shots during Saturday’s parade.
The parade was gathering at Nelson Mandela place and the police were already there to keep order.
