It is touted as one of the largest flotillas assembled on the Thames. Approximately 30,000 people waving flags and cheering Her Majesty the Queen attend. In addition, rowed boats, working boats, and pleasure vessels join luxury mega yacht charter vessels on the river.
Taking place just 6 week prior to the opening ceremonies of the 2012 London Olympics, the yachting spectacle will be enhanced with music barges, boats spouting water cannons, and pyrotechnic barges launching daytime fireworks. There will also be specially-constructed elements like a floating belfry – its chiming bells answered by those from riverbank churches.
Thames piers, riverside roads and bridges will be closed to traffic. At the same time, 40 to 50 giant screens will be erected along the flotilla route. The public can also enjoy the pageant from multiple vantage points to the left and to the right of the river. The flotilla concludes at Battersea Park. The conclusion includes music and artist-led Jubilee-themed entertainment.
