Flowers and piggy banks from the Heritage Building Society (my banking institution).
Petunias and alyssum decorate the "High School Musical" float.
Even the Boys' Brigade made a great effort for their 100th Anniversary. Well done, boys.
Women in Harmony had a very pretty float...of course.
Some of the Red Hat Ladies rode in style. Read about Peter's experience with a Red Hat Lady in Wazza's Place. Warren also has some lovely photos of the parade.
Pretty cottage garden flowers.
The Scouting and Guiding Movement had these little trucks filled with kids and flowers.
Lovely golden pansies.
Not a happy chappie. Helen yelled out "Hey, Grumpy!" He turned and scowled at her and said, "I'm a gnome, not a dwarf!". She yelled back and said, "You're still grumpy!" It was quite appreciated by people around us.
Now, ladies, wouldn't you like to ride around in this? As a little kid by us said, "It's an Elvis car!" Good one, kid...
Imagine this coming to put your fire out...flowers and all. Cool, eh?
Unfortunately, we couldn't see all the parade as we had to be back at Toowoomba Railway Station to climb aboard our coaches for the tour around some of the the prizewinning gardens and also a couple of the parks. I'll post about those tomorrow.
One last photo for today. The heritage listed Toowoomba Railway Station. Note the iron fretwork above the awning.
Hope you enjoyed the photos. Tomorrow is part three...flowers and gardens.
