Parade that stopped a city 让城市停驻的巡游

Tens of thousands lined the streets to watch the procession down Melbourne’s central thoroughfare to see Lord Mayor Robert Doyle and VRC Chairman Michael Burn arrive with the $175,000 18 carat gold Emirates Melbourne Cup .

Connections of the 11 international horses vying for glory in the Emirates Melbourne Cup were overwhelmed by the public show of support.

Instead of the usual trams, it was Living Legends including Might And Power, Brew, Rogan Josh, and Efficient, primary school children dressed in jockey silks, Emirates cabin crew, and a host of dancers and musical performers travelling down Swanston Street.

The popular Birdcage Enclosure was home to a host of celebrities including international guest of the VRC and Emirates, Lady Kitty Spencer, Lleyton and Bec Hewitt and Ricky Ponting at Swisse, Jennifer Hawkins and Kris Smith in the Myer marquee, and French DJ David Guetta at G.H. Mumm.
