We have been looking forward to this day for almost four years. When we found the flat we now live in, in the fall of 2009, we found pictures taken from the building of the West End Festival Parade going by on Byres Road, which was closed for most of the day, cars replaced by people and stalls.
Just our luck that the summer before we moved to Byres Road was the last year the parade went on Byres Road, moving instead to Kelvingrove Park.
Thankfully, it’s back! We spent this fantastic Sunday by having brunch by the window, watching the people below us, followed by a stroll down Byres and back, then watching the parade go past from our window with friends.
It was a good day, and I have the photos and time-lapse video to prove it:
