Li­brary wins Best Pa­rade en­try

Mansfield Courier - - HIGH COUNTRY FESTIVAL -

LAST Satur­day, the main street of Mans­field came alive.

There was some­thing for ev­ery­one - a bustling bush mar­ket up Highett Street, the Me­dian to Rare sculp­ture ex­hibit, live shows and even a pen of al­pacas from Joma Al­pacas.

But no doubt the high­light of the day was the an­nual Mans­field Grand Pa­rade.

With horses, dogs, ve­hi­cles and even a toi­let on wheels, the pa­rade is a fun and en­er­getic look at the groups that call Mans­field home.

The Mans­field Li­brary took out Best En­try, with an im­pres­sive as­sort­ment of book char­ac­ters parad­ing as part of their “float”.

BEST EN­TRY: The Mans­field Li­brary took out the Best En­try in the Mans­field Grand Pa­rade – and rightly so, with at least 50 peo­ple dressed as book char­ac­ters, the li­brary went to con­sid­er­able ef­fort to ar­range their dis­play. There were Harry Pot­ter ma­gi­cians, Lit­tle House on the Prairie sweet­hearts (pic­tured) and char­ac­ters from Mary Pop­pins, to name a few.

BE SAFE: Re­mind­ing peo­ple to be safe over the long week­end was (from left) Marie Mans­field, SES Platy­pus and Sheree Mans­field.

FA­MOUS PANEL VAN: Ev­ery­one in Mans­field knows Billy Webb’s pride and joy, apart from his fam­ily, is his panel van.

MUS­CLE POWER: Fac­ing down some stiff com­pe­ti­tion, this yel­low beast took out the Best Ve­hi­cle en­try.

SMILES: There was lots of smil­ing dur­ing the Mans­field Grand Pa­rade last Satur­day morn­ing.

COME TO THE SHOW: Rep­re­sent­ing the Mans­field A & P So­ci­ety was Ed­win Har­ris.

STEP OUT: No pa­rade would be com­plete with­out bag­pipes.

PA­RADE FAIRY: Danielle Wade, from Mans­field Plumb­ing, was the Mans­field Grand Pa­rade fairy, hand­ing out lol­lies.

WHAT A COL­LEC­TION: Je­sus gave the Mans­field Grand Pa­rade a big thumbs up.
