Representatives from many local organisations such as Merseyside Police, Merseyside Veterinary LGBT+, Liverpool Football Club, Heaven, Navy Bar, National Museums Liverpool, Tate Liverpool, Merseyside Fire & Rescue and lots of local youth and community services marched through the city to the festival zone.
Alongside the crowds, thousands of shoppers, visitors and supporters lined the route which snaked from Lime Street through to Whitechapel, past Liverpool Town Hall and along to Moorfields with the official festival zone was in full swing.
