The Grand Street Parade will kick off at 9.30am with a beautiful array of colour and sound, celebrating our vibrant and diverse community. Enjoy marching bands, community floats, dancers and of course our festival float that will feature our giant inflatable apple, our Mascot Sweetie Pie and Mrs Smith herself!

This year we will have a special appearance by a flock of mini grannies and also the winners of our Shoebox Float competition will wheel by.

Each parade group will have the chance to win special cash prizes thanks to our sponsor Ryde Eastwood Leagues Club.

The best spot to view the parade is on Rowe Street so follow the pink parade route on the map and grab your spot early.
