    Philadelphia, USA

    M/S of a man in a jesters outfit as he skips in front of the parade of a band. Some musicians play banjos and are dressed up like clowns with large ruffs. They are lead by a 'White King' twirling around and waving a baton. A line of male dancers wearing top hats white trousers and carrying canes link up to dance energetically with a kicking step. A man twirls wearing a peacock costume, using wires to display his tail. The street parade includes people dressed up in large decorated box shapes and others carry ornate sheets.

    Note : Must have been wonderful in colour!
