    Location of events unknown.

    Children; entertainment; events. People coming down steps of a church (?) - large grand building. Man in robes & big feathered hat a la Lord Mayor. Many people follow. Some of crowd seated in rows; outdoors (in grounds of the building or gardens?). Pan right to small platform where a woman plays piano; on right. Pan on little girls' choir standing in rows; wearing the same white blouses w/ dark jumpers.

    Shots of some of the girls performing a dance; hopping; skipping round in a circle; etc. Next; other kids; in costumes; frolic about; some blowing long thin horns. More of these kids dancing; girl / boy couples bow & curtsy to each other - in FG back of a little girl with wings. Generally the boys look like junior Robin Hood woodland spirits; with tunics; pointed hoods; and the girls like fairy princesses.

    Next the kids pass by the Mayor and other officials; the children doing a hopping / stepping dance.

    Cute; funny.
