EAGLEHAWK ventured down the rabbit hole for a “Mad Hatters” street parade in the Dahlia & Arts Festival.
A large crowd turned out on Saturday to watch the procession of floats and bands, followed by vintage cars and tractors.
The 42nd annual festival, Eaglehawk resident June Murphy said it was one of her favourite processions.
Mrs Murphy, who brought her granddaughter Isabel along to watch the parade, has been to every festival.
“It’s great I just come every year, I know everyone,” she said. “It’s always a great atmosphere and always local, which I really love.”
Walking along in the parade, Robert Gartside did his bit to stand out, dressing up as a clown to collect money for the Y Service Club.
“I’m not sure why it’s a clown suit, but it’s good fun,” he said.
“Some of the kids really get into it.”
The Dahlia & Arts Festival trivia night will continue tonight with a trivia night at the Eaglehawk Town Hall before closing on Friday with the annual debutante ball.
