100,000 people line the street as hundreds of flowery floats wind their way through the heart of the city. This year’s wonderful theme is “Carnival Comes to Town – Laugh, Play, Hooray!”. Street performers, carnival characters, incredible inflatables and stilt walkers escort the stunning floral floats on their journey to Queens Park.
Be early to grab a good viewing spot because the whole town and thousands of visitors turn out for the Parade! There’s free chalk so you can make your own artistic mark on the parade route and when it’s over, head for the Godsall Oval where the floats are on display and the flowers, fruit and veges that decorated them will be available for sale!
The parade departs from the corner of Herries & Hume Streets, continues along Herries St, turns right into Ruthven St, right into Margaret St, left onto Hume St and finishes on Godsall Oval on the corner of Hume & Godsall Streets.
