Back home in the sunny island of Jersey, in what newsrooms would usually call the \'silly season\', an event takes place every year which epitomises the uniqueness and community spirit of life in the Channel Islands. The Jersey Battle of Flowers is the island\'s annual carnival where on the second thursday of August, floats created by locals descend on St Helier\'s Victoria Avenue for the spectacle of islanders and tourists alike. The 2016 event saw over 15,000 spectators attend the parade, so after over 100 years there\'s no sign of \'Battle Fever\' losing it\'s popularity.
