Nelson Masked Parade 2015

It used to mark the start of the famous World of Wearable Arts show (born in Nelson) but the annual Masked Parade has continued long after WoW has gone.  It still shows a lot of the creativity and energy that is typical of Nelson.  Here are some shots from the 2015 show:

Not sure of the theme for these next ones, but I loved the colour and excitement of the kids:
