Highlights from the Festival of Busselton

The second week of the Festival of Busselton was full of colour and fun.

Huge crowds lined Queen Street to watch the annual float parade.

New floats and community groups joined the line up this year.

Children raked in candy that was thrown from the floats and had a great time getting splashed by water pistols.

The first festival Glow Ride was held in Provence. Children decorated their bikes and did a tour of the paths in the suburb.

Eats N Beats was held at the foreshore amphitheatre. Big crowds attended to see some of the region’s best youth musicians go head to head in the Battle of the Bands.

And it wouldn’t be the Festival of Busselton without a pirate competition.
