The Mayor's Thames Festival takes place in September each year celebrating the main waterway which winds its way through the heart of the city. There's a carnival ambience to the two day festival with street entertainment, art installations, music and dancing all performed at various riverside locations. All this fun entertainment is free and, for the grand finale, there's a colourful night procession featuring costumed performers with tambourines and whistles travelling along Victoria Embankment and via Blackfriars Bridge, culminating in a mammoth free fireworks display. More than a ton of pyrotechnics explode over the River Thames in just ten minutes and large crowds line up along the river to see it.
