The original Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (GEN11) headed the parade

The annual three day Extravaganza in the spring is closely associated with a display of many types of veteran and vintage vehicles in a Festival of Transport held simultaneously at the show ground site at Bodafon Farm Park near the Little Orme. Year 2003 celebrated the 75th anniversary of the introduction of Llandudno UDC operated bus services. There is a daily parade of participating vehicles (including many steam tractors and wagons), brass bands, and carnival troops. The parade travels through the town streets and via the promenade to the show ground. These photographs were taken in May 2003 - something for everybody.
