Tropical Fruits Street Parade

“Is that it? Is that all there is?”, I overhead some visitors say, a bit surprised at how “short” this year’s Tropical Fruits Street Parade was. I was a little inclined to agree, as I remembered the last parade I attended seemed to be a little larger, and there were more people on the streets watching.

This time around the crowds were down compared with the last time I attended – it was Sunday afternoon, and regular Lismore people were probably more inclined to stay around and watch on a weekday – and the parade was much shorter. But it was still very enjoyable, and I had a few lovely chats with people. I even ended up with a dinner party invitation for tomorrow night. Here are some photographs and videos from the afternoon/evening.
