Many people had brought their own chairs and picnic rugs to prepare for the nearly hour-long parade. Afterwards hundreds packed in to Canterbury Park to enjoy a fair.
Dahlia and Arts Festival committee president David Richards said the event had gone well, helped along by the weather.
"The crowds have been fantastic," Mr Richards said.
Mr Richards spent most of his time behind the scenes at the flower show, but three of his grandchildren were out enjoying the event.
He was also pleased by the quality of dahlias on display at the Flower Show.
"The quality considering the conditions is fantastic. There's beautiful dahlias out there," Mr Richards said.
