Liverpool's DREAM; PART five OF A FIVE -PART GIANTS SOUVE NIR SPECIAL; Your stunning pictures of a truly Giant weekend.

Byline: Sue Lee ECHO Print Editor sue.lee@trinitymirror.com @SusanLeeEcho

YOU'VE seen the professional pictures, you've read our reports. Now, in our final Giants ECHO supplement, it's over to you.

We asked for YOUR images of a sensational few days in the city and were inundated with the response.

It's clear the Little Boy, Little Girl, Big Giant and, of course, Xolo have won all our hearts -and dominated our cameras.

We've had photos from street level and taken from a bird's eye view, images of the Giants and the crowds, pictures of Lilliputians and of our wonderful region's beaches, streets and waterfronts. You'll find them all here -a snapshot from our readers' perspective of what for many will be a once-in-a-lifetime event.

But we've turned our lenses on you, too, and captured the faces - the joy, wonder and magic -of the inhabitants of this place we call home as we lined the streets to see the spectacle.

The Giants won't return, but the series of supplements we have produced over the past few days and this one in your hands now serves as a permanent reminder of a time when Giants walked the streets - and Merseyside showed the world how to put on a show.
