Some say the Coleambally birthday parade is at the heart of every anniversary celebration and this year was certainly no exception.
Residents and visitors alike lined the streets on Saturday morning as antique cars and floats from the area’s different groups marched through town.
The group was joined by special guests, with planes taking to the skies to wish the township a happy birthday.
Around 60 participants joined the show, with prizes handed out to three of the best entrants.
Coleambally Irrigation, Rural Fire Service’s vintage fire truck and Bob and Heather Goudie’s vintage car took out first, second and third prize.
Tracey Boschetti was part of the group organising the parade. She says the response was overwhelming.
“People were three or four deep as they lined up to watch the parade,” she said.
“The quality of the floats was amazing. We were very well supported by local businesses, school and other community groups.”
The parade made its way down Brolga Place before turning left on Kingfisher Ave and finishing at Lions Park.
“I’d just like to thank all of the participants for all their effort. It was amazing how many people said made them quite sentimental. I was just proud to be involved in everything.”
