Description

In 2013 they celebrate the 50th Harvest Festival! The Babinda Harvest Festival is an annual Babinda event. In this sugar town, it celebrates the start of the sugarcane harvest (mid June), as well as celebrating the harvesting of other tropical produce from their region.

The Grand Parade will have themed floats from businesses, schools and clubs.
