    Various shots of the festival procession in open arena. M/S's of Men in fancy dress (mainly dressed as nurses) and on stilts push large prams covered in flowers around the arena (looks a bit bizarre !). High angle shots of the procession which also includes numerous horse drawn floats which are loaded up with flowers. L/S's of people in the crowd throwing flowers at the floats and in turn the people on the floats toss them back (they appear to be having enormous fun !).
