Never seen anything like this before so I'm looking forward to watching it in Liverpool.
On Sunday both giants leave Liverpool Albert Dock at 12.45 and head down the River Mersey to finish at 2pm - should make great photos.

Took my grand-daughter yesterday, after school. We had a great spec on the Strand. The highlight of the parade was when the Giant Little Girl's giant dog cocked his leg against the traffic lights and peed. All the kids went into hysterics. If anyone does go to see this fantastic event please take note of the amazing work of the puppeteers' skills. Just hope that the weather holds up over the weekend.
