Darth Vader and Imperial Storm Troopers in Lincolnshire!!

In a development that seems to have completely passed our political leaders by, Darth Vader, Imperial Storm Troopers, Daleks and Doctor Who were seen in Spalding this afternoon. They were joined by, among others, James Bond, Shrek, Batman and several Robins, Wonderwoman, and a host of Disney Princesses.

The occasion was the Annual Spalding Flower Parade where the theme was Screen Heroes. Some 40 floats made up the parade and many of them were fantastic. The amount of work and creativity that has been put into their design and building is amazing.

The photos shows Darth Vader briefing one of his Imperial Storm Troopers about the following Combine Harvester that is about to run them down!

The the next photo two Daleks are seen with Dr Who nonchalantly strolling along in the foreground apparently unaware that he may be exterminated at any moment.

The whole event was extremely well organised with people sitting in their own deck chairs at the side of the road while the parade passed by. While waiting, it was noticeable that policemen were happy to chat to children and even let them sit in police cars.

It was simply a delightful family afternoon out, and everyone seemed to be enjoying it.
