A sea of smiles and many teary eyes greeted the enormous marionette when she arrived by train on Friday morning
More than 250,000 people attended the three day street extravaganza.
Some 27 Lilliputians were tasked with moving the Giant Grandmother who was followed by her own band of musicians and a massive wheelchair – weighing 5 tonnes.
But despite the phenomenal skill of the puppeteers tasked with moving their 85-year-old charge – raising every individual step by rope pulley – all eyes are drawn to the 25 foot Grandmother who was handled as though she was a living being.
