Make Smoking History Float Parade

Fabulous Floats Wanted!

Delight us with your colourful and flamboyant floats!

Each year, the people of Broome look forward to the fun and the mayhem of the Shinju Matsuri Float Parade. If you are in Broome, you are either part of it or you watch it!

It is an integral feature of the Shinju Matsuri calendar with Floats representing the diversity of the Broome community, making their way from Weld Street to Male Oval cheered on by thousands along the way.

This year it will take place on Sunday 26th August, starting from 3pm.

Marshalling to take place from 2pm.

With great prizes up for grabs you’d be mad not to get involved in this vibrant community event.
