London New Year Parade - Lazy locals?

Niece just came back with her friends from London NY parade. She told us that foreign participants especially the numerous American High School bands and cheerleading groups saved the parade. Said out locals did not have a proper theme for their entries, no practice evident, except for a few the rest were attired in casual daily wear. She said that the worst were entries from various London Councils and Boroughs who were more concerned with panhandling along the route.

She also said the American were mainly youngsters while out locals were in mostly in their late 50s.

Clearly disappointed after a 3 hr train journey.

Anyone else attended the parade.

I didn't even know there was one, I assume the idea is an American import, parades just aren't British unless they are military.
