Battle of Flowers
One of the most spectacular carnivals in Europe, the Battle of Flowers is a spectacle of flower-festooned floats, musicians, dancers and entertainers.
In 1902 to celebrate the Coronation of Kind Edward Vll and Queen Alexandra, Jersey decided to hold a parade. It was so successful that it was decided to repeat it the following year and a tradition was established.
The Battle of Flowers parade takes place along Victoria Avenue, on the south coast alongside St Aubin's Bay. There is the day time Grand Parade, and the Moonlight Parade the following evening.
