GALLERY: Street Parade makes glorious return

NO OTHER town in Australia could boast having Batman, school children and a pony wearing a floatie on their man street.

This morning it happened in Warwick, with the glorious return of the Rodeo Street Parade.

Schools, businesses, companies, emergency services and everybody in between took the opportunity to show how much this parade means to the Rose City, with more than 30 floats lining our main street.

Mayor Tracy Dobie lauded the day as a big success.

"It was wonderful,” Cr Dobie said.

"The feedback from participants, particularly those who came from outside of town, was very positive.

"We recieved a lot of thank you's for bringing it back.”

The streets were full of eager spectators, and Cr Dobie said it was a great sight.

"Everybody had a great time, and it was good to see so many people there,” she said.

"In some parts of the parade the crowds were five deep.

"There was plenty of laughter and children involved, which is what it is all about.

"Everybody is now looking forward to next year.”
