Like a scene from War of the Worlds the massive beast appears to be attacking Liverpool Town Hall but instead of fleeing for their lives the crowds just want to get closer.
Accompanied by musicians and with the Lord Mayor smiling and waving from the balcony La Princesse slowly made its way through the city centre.
It (and the crowd) got a good soaking in Derby Sq then at the top of Lord St it was covered in snow which makes it sleepy so (much to the disappointment of the people waiting in Church St.) it slept for and hour or so before moving on.

15.00 The creature wakes up and is prepared for the evening’s entertainment.
