Cairns Festival Parade Workshops

Cairns Regional Council


Started: 12 May 2018 09:00
Finished: 26 May 2018 16:00


This is a Free Event.

The Cairns Festival Grand Parade will be held on Saturday 25 August and is the perfect chance for community groups, schools, clubs, organisations, individuals and businesses to bet involved with this much-loved community event.

The theme for the 2018 Grand Parade is ‘Kaleidoscope’. Using colour, patterns, light, sound and movement we’d love to see you join our kaleidoscopic parade.

To encourage and support our Parade participants in creating and building your float, free workshops will be on offer again this year.

Facilitated by experienced artists Ricky Beresford and Kylie Burke, workshop participants will be given assistance in the art of making a float that attracts attention and reflects this year’s theme.
