This weekend was the 60th Anniversary of the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers. We had beautiful weather and the parade was wonderful. I am still not a parade person, standing in the sun with wriggly kids, whinging parents, pushy photographers, oops was I one of them and just a lot of waiting and standing. The floats were better this year than some other years but the gaps between the floats was sometimes long and frankly boring. Sorry but it was. The performers on stilts were great and there were quite a few different ones, the beautiful red lady above was really pretty. The Koala was walking with the volunteer fire brigade and I am afraid that once again this summer they will be very busy. We are having extremely hot weather already. What a great bunch of men and women they are.
