For 10 days from September 16 to 25, Toowoomba comes alive with flowers, food and fun.
The Carnival of Flowers plays host to a whole series of fantastic Festivals, concerts, displays, special events and tours.
On Saturday we joined thousands of people who lined the street to watch the Carnival Parade wind its way through the heart of the city, ending at Queen’s Park. This year’s theme is “Carnival Comes to Town – Laugh, Play, Hooray!”
The parade did not start until 3 o’clock in the afternoon, so we arrived in town to find a good viewing spot by 2 o’clock. We were entertained by performers, carnival characters, community groups and floral floats on their way to Queens Park. It was good to see how involved the community is in this event and interesting to note the great variety of ethnic groups that make up the population of Toowoomba.
