Manchester was bathed in glorious sunshine and warm spring temperatures on Monday evening as around 500,000 Blues gathered in and around Deansgate while soaking up an early evening spectacular, deluged in a sea of blue.

While the Manchester City players, management, and backroom staff divided themselves into three open-top buses those in attendance watched in delighted while dancing and partying throughout the whole three-hour event.

Numerous Premier League records smashed, two trophies under their belt, wow, what a way to say a season farewell to the City faithful.

Can it get any better?

A special mention has to go to the MCFC media team who, captured and delivered the spectacular via the clubs social media outlets. Without their dedication and professionalism Blues like me who live too far away to travel to Manchester watched the parade, live. A magnificent and huge thank you to every one of you (takes the hat off and bows).

There are dozens of videos, images, and gifs floating around the Web – the following are what I think cover the atmosphere and occasion at its best.

As ever, Ian Cheeseman created an excellent and creative Vlog.

Esteemed Kompany didn’t plan on making a recording but decided to do one at the last minute.

I know the following has nothing to do with the parade – to be honest, I was going to embed the clip at the end of this article. However and having had second thoughts, I believe it was too good and would be probably be overlooked if I left it to rot!

This has to be the most creative video I’ve seen in a long time. What do you think?

Parade images

I cannot add every single player image as we would be overwhelmed. The following is a mere snippet.

I could have gone on forever!

Now it’s time for a small selection of fans images.

Summer is just around the corner, and so I’m going to slow down on VMC for a while and take in some sun, sea, and surf.

CTD.
