Busselton Jetty features fireworks

The annual Festival of Busselton came to an end on Saturday January 27.

It ended with a packed out Signal Park for the concert with Murphy’s Lore and a fireworks display along the Busselton Jetty.

The month long festival featured a plethora of activities including Petty Coat Lane, Float Parade, Art in the Park, markets, sand castle competition and a pirate day with a visit from STS Leeuwin II.

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 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.
