Winners announced of Cairns Festival parade

Saturday evening's Cairns Festival opening parade was a blast.

Whilst I was bunkered down in a political shitstorm, the first hour or so at the Labor camp, then at the LNP party, I missed the best part of the parade, and the fireworks. However, politics in the back streets didn't rate a mention along the Esplanade on Saturday night.

"The creativity and fun rolled through the streets of Cairns," Festival producer Eric Holowacz said. "The Festival judges had a hard time picking winners, but now they can be revealed."

1st PLACE - Cairns Bands and the Woree High School marching band for their lead role ahead of the parade's King and Queen of Green.

2nd PLACE - Cairns Climate Action Network

- Cairns BMX Club

1st - Cairns Tropical Pride took top honours.
2nd - The spectacular NQ Hummer Mr Pinstripe Suit float.
3rd - Cairns Dragon Boat

1st - Ronald Ressecieu as a six-foot unicycle seahorse
2nd - Zachary Barclay as Pan the Pagan God
