At start; a nurse is leading a tiny girl out to give a bouquet to the woman in suit. A man stands; speaks. Group of young girls dance sideways in rows with arms outstretched. They are all dressed in the same short tunics and jumpers with leaves (?!) stuck on them; as if they are woodland spirits or something; also headbands. They stop and stand in 2 rows; swinging their arms and singing. Pan over quite a large crowd seated in park -- many ladies.
