The Cygnet Christmas Parade

It was such fun, such a happy occasion and such a lovely evening with no rain (evidently rain is usually a feature of the parade!). Cygnet has a population of 800 and I reckon that everyone of them was out lining the streets.

There was every kind of vehicle from little kids on little motor bikes to scout floats, a vintage car, utes and trucks, fire engines and this cute little racing car....

Oh... why were we in it? We were representing the community garden and next year we'll have a banner and seeds to throw to people......

What a wonderful,family,fun, community event.
Good old fashioned fun, might go decorate our old rusty wheelbarrow!

Only parade here in the city is thousands of 4 wheel drives, driving like maniacs, consuming petrol and driving lazy people to malls to consume more STUFF!
