IWA Canalway Cavalcade 2013

What's the IWA and what on Earth is a canalway cavalcade you might well ask? Well this is:

The IWA stands for the Inland Waterways Association and the the Canalway Cavalcade seems to involve lots of narrow boats hanging out at Little Venice.

Little Venice sounds very romantic and if you go in one direction you're in Maida Vale which is indeed very nice but in the other it's Paddington and flyovers:
Narrow boats are a bit too like caravaning for me and I wasn't too surprised to see lots of real ale and a solitary Morris Dancer, which is odd as they usually tinkle in packs.

They'll be there over the Bank Holiday weekend here in London and there's a jazz band, stands with food & drink, events for children etc if you're into that sort of thing or just want an excuse to wander along the old canals of London.
