THE BIRMINGHAM POST: What rain?

Grey skies and rainy weather couldn't deter the party spirit of thousands of visitors to Birmingham at the weekend.

Despite predictions of heavy rain, organisers of the Gay Pride Festival and The Mayor's Show were convinced the turnout would be huge. And how right they were.

Crowds of 5,000 lined the city's streets, while a further 1,000 people flocked to Cannon Hill Park.

If ever there was a sign Birmingham was rapidly developing a reputation as an all-embracing city, it would be the sight of thousands of tourists dressed in fluorescent pink, braving Britain's weather to dance through the streets to Abba tribute band Bjorn Again.
