Gloucester Day Parade Sept 2013







The Gloucester Day Parade took place in the Historic City of Gloucester, on Saturday the 7th of September 2013. The parade through the four main gated streets commenced at 2 pm and was led by the Mayor and Sheriff of Gloucester, in full Civic regalia.

This event was designed to reinstate the original Gloucester day celebrating the lifting of the siege of Gloucester in 1643. This occasion was celebrated annually for centuries, hence Gloucester becoming known as The City Saved by God.
