delighted with the support we receive from the Liverpool people towards the
festival, last year's parade was without doubt our biggest and best. This year
is going to be just as spectacular with the City coming alive with the sound of
the Brazilian beat. Music, dance and costumes create the overall atmosphere of
this event and we are already in full preparation mode to ensure we deliver a
special festival for our tenth anniversary year.
