The Grand Parade will have themed floats from businesses, schools and clubs. Then it's off to the Showgrounds for an afternoon and evening of free entertainment, amusements and rides, the crowning of the Harvest Queens, fireworks display, displays from Babinda schools, local produce, and historical agricultural machinery, pony rides, lolly drop, and a live band and bar.
