Yesterday there was a parade of about 1,000 boats on the river Thames in London.
A million people watched the parade and the Queen and her family on a decorated Royal barge.

These people had waited for hours, some had even spent the night there to get the best spot. Unfortunately for them, it rained for the most part of the night!
Luckily the weather was nicer for the concert outside Buckingham Palace on Monday:
What a jubilee!
