2021-01-24 Federation Festival Parade

 

Despite the soaring temperatures over the weekend, hundreds of locals gathered on Sunday to watch the floats and pipe bands come down Sanger Street. It was a year like no other with COVID-19 check in stations and sanitizer available to the public. 

A total of 19 entries paraded down the street. These included floats, bands, emergency service vehicles, mini coopers and vintage tractors. After a year of limited performance opportunities, five pipe bands including the Scots School Albury Pipe Band embraced the opportunity to perform for the community. Corowa Public School was awarded the "Best School Float" award as well as "Best Presented Float" while the Corowa Federation Museum float was crowned "Most Humorous Float".

Despite only three weeks notice, everyone who made the effort to attend and contribute to the weekend's festivities should be praised. It was certainly a most enjoyable parade.
