First the have a parade in the streets with floats that hold princesses, who are I guess involved in the community in some way. I do know they have a ball on Easter Saturday which is quite a highlight for the year. I am still uncertain as to why they have princesses and their function to this event but they were all dressed up looking quite splendid on the floats. A couple I do know are involved with leo's (lions for young people) so I guess it is community involvement.
So at 12 o'clock 22 floats with 36 princesses paraded up the main street. I expect the theme for the floats was classic movies including, Aladdin, Shrek, 101 Dalmatians, Tomorrow when war began(?), Grease, Rio, Peter Pan....

|Madagascar 3. I thought this one was the best But then I do love the movie :0)|
|The crowd heads off to have a ride, some lunch, watch the blessing ceremony or join in the games|
|Even the boats dressed up with bunting for the day|
