Festivities in full swing at the annual Moomba Parade
Thousands of Melburnians have lined the city’s streets for the annual Moomba Parade.
Running since 1955, this year’s parade celebrates Melbourne’s food scene, with chefs Karen Martini and Guy Grossi being crowned Moomba Monarchs.
Over 2000 people are taking part in the parade, which started near the Shrine of Remembrance, with dancers, performers, marching bands, cheerleaders and giant floats heading down St Kilda Road.
Floats in this year’s parade include a giant bowl of spaghetti, a robot, a whale and designs from seven children who took part in last year’s Design a Float workshop.
