Avon and Somerset police completed a parade from Walliscote Primary School to Clarence Park.

The event has become tradition since it began in 2006, with officers, special constables, community support officers, staff, cadets and mounted police taking part.

The mace escort team, fire ceremonial team and the Blue Knights motorcycle charity also joined the parade, which was led by the City of Bristol Pipes and Drums.
