Event description
The Hervey Bay Whale Festival's 'Whale Parade' will take place from 2:30pm, Sunday 1 August from the corner of Franks St & Esplanade.

About this event

The 2021 Whale Parade and Family Day will go ahead on Sunday 1 August! Family festivities will start from 1pm at Seafront Oval while the Parade will begin from 2:30pm at the corner of Franks St and Esplanade (near Sea Breeze Café) and follow the road along the Esplanade before arriving at Seafront Oval.

Join us in celebrating the return of the humpback whales to the Fraser Coast by joining in on a magical day of family activities, live entertainment, food stalls, the homecoming of the Dunga Derby, and of course the exquisite Whale Parade. Opt to create a group and march to the beat, ride on a float or simply cheer from the sidelines.

The theme for this year is SPLASH! School groups, friends and families are welcome to join in on the parade and sport their most creative ocean-inspired costumes and/or floats. If it's a creature that can be found in the waters of Hervey Bay then we want to see it on your floats - from humpback whales to dugongs, sea turtles, stingrays, dolphins, prawns, fish and more! Be creative, be imaginative and have a whale of a time!

Entrants need to consider the impact on our natural environment when building their floats & displays, please no plastics or tinsel.

COMPETITION TIME!
