London sees first full NYD parade in three years

STORY: Marching bands from the U.S. joined bagpipe players from a London Hindu temple to entertain crowds who lined the route.

The event started at noon on London’s Piccadilly outside the Ritz Hotel, ending few hours later at Westminster.

The first LNYDP took place in 1987. This year hundreds of performers from the UK and around the world took part in the event, which organizers say reaches a television audience of more than 500,000 annually.
