the mayor’s thames festival – the end of london 2012

Every year at the end of the summer, the mayor of London hosts a free festival on the banks of the Thames, lasting 2 days. This year, it’s this weekend: September 8 and 9. It’s a fun thing to go to – as well as loads of events, there’s great food from around the world, street performers, art installations and live music. Tomorrow there’s Shishi-Odori dance by Oshu Kanatsu-Ryu Dance Troupe, “All Eyes on Korea” by the Tate Modern, a boat display in St Katherine’s Docks and a Night Carnival (to name a few). As a sort of closing to the London 2012 Olympic Games, there’s also a Homage to Rio display worth checking out. It all ends with a firework finale between Blackfriars and Waterloo Bridge.
