Tick­ets to the event, which starts at 6.30pm at the Gayn­dah Town Hall, are $25 at the door.

The pa­rade is the cen­tre­piece of the fes­ti­val’s Grand Pa­rade Day on Satur­day.

Ex­pect to see a wide va­ri­ety of floats head­ing down Me­son St from 11.30am.

Fol­low­ing the pa­rade there will be plenty of en­ter­tain­ment, from ma­gi­cians to top-notch mu­si­cians like X-Fac­tor con­tes­tant Caitlyn Shad­bolt.

For the young ones, Cilla Slack will de­light with her Blue Gum Farm Show.

The fun will con­tinue on Sun­day with a range of citrus-re­lated ac­tiv­i­ties and com­pe­ti­tions.

Com­peti­tors can try their hand at orange throw­ing, citrus eat­ing, citrus pack­ing and heaps more at Anzac Park.

There will also be plenty of mar­ket and food stalls.

The fes­ti­val kicked off last week­end with the Gala Ball, where the Orange Fes­ti­val Queen and Char­ity Queen were crowned.
