This year after such a long dry spell, all sorts of stuff sprouted from the rotting pine plantation floor.

Of course there were saffron milk caps and Slippery Jacks which ended up in a traditional Latvian mushroom sauce poured over some of that rugged rye bread from Himalayan Bakery.

Grande Parata 2007

Once again the schools of the region flowed onto the streets of Hepburn Springs, this time taking a different route due to redevelopment works down at the spa.

The wildest burst of color came from Daylesford Primary School.

The Daylesford Secondary College Concert Band percussion section pounded out nursery rhymes.

The usual suspects pass Swiss Italian landmarks.

It is unfortunate that some sponsors felt the need to have an intrusive presence in what is basically a community festival. Instead of branding the parade, a superior approach would have been to give away samples of the product on street corners.

Despite the crush at the end where too many revelers attempted to fit into what was basically a glorified back yard, fun was had by all.
