Busselton abuzz with festival events

The city was buzzing over the weekend with Festival of Busselton events drawing big crowds.

The annual float parade had families lining Queen Street, with children excitedly collecting lollies that were thrown from the floats.

Floats got in to the spirit of the event, entertaining the street spectators with dancing and spraying them with water pistols.

GeoVet’s Pet Parade had dog owners and their canine companions descend on the foreshore.

All sizes and breeds were represented in the cute competition.

Categories included Most Creative Costume, Best Superhero Combo and Best Hair Do.

Conditions were perfect on Sunday for the Sandcastle Competition on Jetty Beach.

All sorts of creations took over the beach from sea monsters and creatures such as sharks to other nautical themed efforts like the Titanic.

A giant crab was spotted as was a mermaid stuck on dry land.
