Thames Festival River Parade at River Thames

The Mayor's Thames Festival River Parade is an annual event celebrating the Thames and all who sail upon it. From pleasure cruisers to sailing barges, luxury yachts to oyster smacks, the River Parade swells the Thames with big boats, small boats, old boats and new boats. With a healthy disregard for pomp and pageantry, the River Parade combines exceptional historic vessels with everyday working boats, bringing the past and present users of London's oldest landmark together on the water to have a jolly good time. If a river boat's worth its salt it will be there with bells on.
