queenThankfully the predicted downpours didn’t materialize this afternoon and the highlight of Pride Week – the colourful parade, went ahead. Even Her Majesty made an appearance as well as plenty of other queens! There was an abundance of rainbow flags, colourful and sometimes barely there outfits as well as lots of cheeky feathers.

coco2Colin “Miss Coco” Brown certainly made an entrance, donning feathers and plenty of sequins, stealing the show upon Celeso, a beautiful and very well behaved white stallion. There were plenty of spectators, both locals and holidaymakers lining the route, heading along the Levante promenade then turning onto the main Avd Mediterraneo and finishing at the town hall square.


double deckerOfficial figures stated that just over 300 participated in the parade this year – it certainly wasn’t as many as in previous years and there was a marked absence of floats. Businesses here need to get behind this annual event and invest some money to continue attracting people.

pink feathersOver the course of the week the nightly events, both up at the Mirador - at the top of the old town and the Julio Iglesias auditorium - behind the town hall, have had terrific turnouts with a fabulous line up of entertainment and a great atmosphere, with positive feedback from all those that attended.

Quoting confused:
Not so long ago you were reporting on the lack of dress and the way people were exhibiting themselves around Benidorm... how terrible it is. Now this. This apparently is ok??

I totally agree in the concept of what you are saying. However, the LGBT Pride is an organised event held around the world - this I would say is an exception and I would include in that exception, the forthcoming British Fancy Dress Day.

what is so special about these people? Why can't we have a heterosexual parade?( because the authorities won't let us. They say it is derogatory to all others) so what is this if it isn't derogatory to all others?

    Match making comedian Paddy McGuinness and former International cricketer Freddie Flintoff have been confirmed as the new hosts of 'Top Gear'. It has come as a huge surprise to many and the pair are rumoured to have secured a £500K two year deal with Beeb bosses!
  • Olive Oil +

    Prices of olive oil are expected to rocket as crops in Italy and Greece have been hit by bad weather. In some areas harvests are down by 60% and subsequently, wholesale prices have doubled from €3,000 to €6,000 a ton! But the saving grace may be Spain, where they had a bumper olive harvest...
  • That's crackers! +

    The Royal Mint are launching a gift range which will include 58 select items, one of which is a 'gold' six pack of Christmas crackers costing £5,000! But obviously for that price you are getting slightly more than a paper hat and plastic spinning top - you may be lucky to pull open a 1oz gold bar, 24 carat bullion coin or even an 18 carat gold diamond necklace!
  • End of the road +

    The last Ford Mondeo is expected to roll off the production line by 2020. The popular family car was launched in 1993 and was the epitome of the middle classes - with nearly 130K sold in the first year. Last year only 55K were sold across the whole of Europe hence the decision to stop production. But Ford takes the top slot for the UK's best selling car - with the Fiesta and in 4th place, the Focus model.
  • DIY closures +

    DIY store Homebase is set to close approximately 60 stores over the next few weeks, threatening more than 1,000 jobs. The chain currently has 250 UK stores, employing around 12,000 staff.
  • Chewing gum +

    A estimated £60 million a year is spent cleaning chewing gum off pavements - a startling amount. More than 100,000 tons are consumed every year, but many have no idea that it contains plastic. Now supermarket chain Iceland have developed a a new product called 'Simply Gum' - which is made from a sap called chicle, extracted from a tree native to Central America.
