Once a year in mid-November the canonic golden Lord Mayor's Coach leaves its regular position in the Museum of London and paves its way to Westminster, carrying the newly-elected Mayor of the City of London to the Queen, so that he can officially show his subordination to the Crown. The colourful procession is supported with fireworks set off right above the river Thames. This tradition goes back to 13th century, when in 1215 King John officially allowed the townspeople to elect their own Mayor. Although the elections take place every four years, the parade of the luxurious Lord Mayor's Coach is held annually.
