Grand Central Floral Parade

100,000 people line the street as hundreds of flowery floats wind their way through the heart of the city. This year’s wonderful theme is “The Secret Garden”. Street performers, carnival characters, incredible inflatables and stilt walkers escort the stunning floral floats on their journey to Queens Park.

Be early to grab a good viewing spot because the whole town and thousands of visitors turn out for the parade! There’s free chalk so you can make your own artistic mark on the parade route and when it’s over head for the Godsall St Oval where the floats are on display and the flowers, fruit and vegies that decorated them will be available for sale!

The parade departs from the corner of Herries & Hume Streets, continues along Herries Street, turns right into Ruthven Street, right into Margaret Street, left onto Hume Street and finishes on Godsall St Oval on the corner of Hume & Godsall Streets.



There are road closures in place around Toowoomba CBD on Saturday 22 September. For a comprehensive map of the road closures, please click here
