This weekend just gone was the start of the Cairns Festival.
I had kind of been hoping I'd be able to make it to the parade and, of cause, the fireworks.
Now the one problem with going to these things is that unless you rock up hours and hours early you have to park half a world away.
The good thing about that is that you never know what you'll see along the way.
Sooo many people had converged on the Esplanade for the parade and following fireworks.
I certainly didn't have the best view but it was still fun to watch along. Lots of colour and sound and some pretty entertaining floats got everyone joining in.
As night came and the parade finished the crowd moved in a wave to the waterfront, looking for good spots to watch the fireworks.
Amazingly the fireworks started on time! Not something that often happens in my experience here.
They were certainly worth the wait too.
I just love fireworks! How about you?
Then it was time for the trek back to the car. It had been a bit nippy waiting down on the Esplanade so the walk was good for a warm up, I guess.
I am hoping to get to some other things but I'll see what happens. This week is pretty busy work wise.
