Grand Central Floral Parade

Held on Saturday 17 September from 10:00-12:00, the Grand Central Floral Parade is one of the landmark and centrepiece activities of the festival.MO
Cinema Under The Stars

Throw down a picnic blanket, open a basket of food and get ready to watch a movie under the stars for a twilight movie screening.

Teddy Bears Picnic
Here’s one for the kids and the young at heart. Head to Toowoomba’s Picnic Point, bring along your favourite toy bear (we’ve all got one, right) and along with Tambo Teddies join in a picnic to remember.

The inaugural Teddie Bears Picnic will include all-day interactive games, colouring-in and roving kids entertainment and food stalls. All teddies are invited to be in the fashion parade.
