CBD is party central for Mardi Gras

THE main street came alive on Friday night as thousands of people flocked to this year's Mardi Gras celebration.

There was plenty of fun to be had with tasty treats, oversized slides, showbags and awesome prizes to be won in the sideshow alley games.

The Warwick Rotary Club's fairy floss and donuts were a crowd- pleaser for people of all ages.

Entertainment was provided by the Warwick Thistle Pipe Band, belly dancers and a performance by 2009 Australian Idol finalist James Johnson.
