The National Saint David's Day Parade, staged in Cardiff on Wales' patron saint's day, March 1st, grows in colour and delight year by year.The civilian parade last year was supported by over six thousand walkers including performing bands, jumping stiltsters and groups in traditional Welsh costumes carrying the banners of Wales and Saint David.
The city is expecting the crowds to come out once again to line the streets and there is a welcome for all who want to join in the celebrations and or just cheer on the lunchtime parade.2010 Parade:
