This weekend is the start of Cairns Festival which is a 17 day event....see more here. Yes, hubby was there with his camera so had to share the photos. I haven't been to a parade for five years and hubby has never been to one so he was pleasantly surprised at the number of people and how much fun it was.
Don't you love the muscles on these guys above? Great paintwork.
