The Grand Parade Spectacular is the culmination of the 2017 Outback Festival and will be held on Saturday 23 September.
Stay tuned for the theme of the 2017 Grand Parade – there will be endless possibilities! The Parade is a fantastic activity for the whole family to participate in together, from designing and building a float to travelling on it in the Parade to just watching them roll down Winton’s main street.
Each year, Winton’s businesses and community groups, along with festival visitors, strive to out-do each other in a display of creativity and colour. The Parade attracts around 50 floats, along with people on bikes, foot and four legged animals (usually horses). When combined with the heritage machinery and trucks, the Parade stretches for four blocks through the main part of Winton.
Golden Casket has supported the Festival as naming rights sponsor of the Grand Parade Spectacular since 1999. Golden Casket’s support enables the festival to provide prizes in 12 categories and give away more than $2000 in prize money.
Golden Casket has a long and proud history of supporting communities throughout Queensland through its sponsorship of events such as the Outback Festival.
