EVERY student at Glennie Heights State School and C&K Kindergarten has been involved in the creation of their float entry for the Rodeo street parade.

P&C treasurer Jo Cristina said the float would be assembled on a truck this morning.

"All the classes have helped make something," she said.

"The kindy made the horses, another grade paper flowers and painted horseshoes."

To embrace this year's theme, hooves 'n' grooves, the school's float boasts bright colours, glitter and streamers.

The kids will also be dressed up in bright tie-dye and hippie style clothes.

Callum Ford said he and his dad had made the wooden horse.

"It was very fun," he said.

"Making the A-frame was the best bit because of all the wood work."

Rylee Hill said he enjoyed painting the horseshoes.

There will be a total of 44 floats in today's parade, which starts at noon along Palmerin St.

Make sure you keep an eye out for Central State School with their choir and skipping team, WIRAC's Zumba kids, Warwick's Little Athletics and the Warwick Animal Welfare Association.
