Swiss Italian Festa – 2007 May 4, 2007Posted by daylesford in Uncategorized.
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.
