They seem to be jousting, Tom, but left their horses at home.
Tom Wilson: No - the horses will be running later smile
This might be the best part... smile
Tom Wilson: The different districts competed to see who could put on the best bit of flag waving smile
All very colourful Tom.
Tom Wilson: Very much so.

It all looks very ritualised Tom
Tom Wilson: Indeed it is, and as they've been doing it since 1633, they've got it down to a fine art!
There is something Pythonesque about this Tom
Tom Wilson: I picture John Cleese doing a silly flag-waving smile

It looks like a Monty Python send up.
Tom Wilson: You and Bill both, Chad!
