Roman Saturnalia Parade, Chester

Recommended Posts

Last Thursday we finished off our "XMAS" shopping in Chester. Having not been to this particular Christmas market we thought that we would give it a go. One of the other reasons was the annual Roman Saturnalia Parade.

Starting from in-front of the Cathedral and moving onto Eastgate Street we seen a brilliant parade. This experience merged two fantastic street parades.... The Saturnalia parade sees the Roman legion light up the streets with a torch-lit parade and the Winter Watch is a historic event when the city leaders would hand over the keys to the city watch. Tagged onto this is a street Parade celebrating the winter solstice together with druids, Haiti voodoo dead, marching band etc...……….it is well worth seeing as a spectacle.
