Banana festival parade a sunny success

THE street parade lasted nearly an hour with the current Banana Queen , Princess's and other Festival royalty all on show to the crowd who took pictures and video as the festivities moved past them.

Long time resident Terry Knight has been coming to the Festival for decades and still enjoys himself every single year.

" I have been coming since I was a kid and it is still a fantastic event," Mr Knight said.

The festival finished at the weekend after several weeks of celebrations.
