Chinese floats feature in Lord Mayor’s Parade

London’s landmark annual spectacular event Lord Mayor’s Show will feature three Chinese groups which are staging floats in celebration of China and the UK’s close financial collaboration.

The Lord Mayor’s Show, which follows a tradition spanning over 800 years, will be a full day celebration on Saturday, bringing together more than 7,000 people, 200 horses and more than 150 floats to make the three mile procession from Mansion House, past St Paul’s Cathedral to the Royal Courts of Justice and back to Mansion House.

The event marks Charles Bowman taking office as the 690th elected Lord Mayor of the City of London.

The three Chinese organizations staging floats in the show are the Bank of China, the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in London and the Zhejiang UK Association.
