Street Parade History

Community participation in the Street Parade has always been extensive, simply ask a long term resident of Campbelltown about the Parade and they are sure to have been in it, or know someone who has.

As a local can only know, the atmosphere and flash of colour that travels south down Queen Street is electric. Parade entrants, who are shuffled into order by Campbelltown´s State Emergency Services, wait with anticipation at the Campbelltown Show Ground, until the official´s radio ahead to signal that the speeches at the official opening are concluding. Entrants are a buzz with excitement and on the lookout for friends and family in the crowd.

Elaborate floats, marching bands and community groups have included representatives from the: scouts, air league, girl guides, local police, NSW Fire Brigade and Rural Fire Service, high schools, primary schools, sporting groups, local newspapers and radio stations, the local theatre group, State Emergency Services, Council, cultural groups, the Steam and Machinery Museum, penny farthing clubs, aviation clubs as well as local businesses and community groups.
