One Hackney Parade
We came, we saw, we partied….Olympic style. Saturday saw ONEHACKNEY festival take over the borough, summoning people in droves to witness the iconic moment our fair streets joined in with the Olympic torch relay and stamped it with our East-end mark. From Shoreditch park we presented our Land of Kings float, rolling up through Dalston all the way to Clissold park, blasting out tunes from Hannah Holland, Richard Clancy and Isa along the way. Joining the convoy of other floats, dancers, parade-goers, and general passers-by who couldn’t help but hop on board the ONEHACKNEY wagon, we celebrated the momentous event in true Hackney style. If you ask us it was probably the most boisterous and most glorious of all the torch relay celebrations, not that we’re biased, mind.
