Macrossan Street comes alive with dazzling entertainment for the young and the young at heart.
A true community event in the finest of Tropical North Queenslander traditions, the Macrossan Street Parade has long been the opening highlight of Port Douglas Carnivale and regularly draws eager crowds of thousands.
From 5pm be a part of the Fun at our free Kids Disco, parade viewing area. This Family Friendly space will not only be the best spot to take in the parade, but will be a boogie wonderland of Fun disco tunes, prizes and plenty of surprises. Thanks to the guys from Rattle & Hum, we have the AMAZING MJ on the wheels of steel playing boogie tunes that will run right up until the parade start time. Make sure if you’ve got kids you make your way to Rattle & Hum and make the most of our Family Friendly Viewing area.
Be captivated by the sights and sounds of extraordinary street performers, indulge in the fresh goodies on offer at the market food stalls, and be thrilled by an array of amusement rides for the whole family. The parade will be kicking off at 6:30pm followed by a spectacular fireworks display at 8pm driving the party into high gear. The street fun continues into the night with the amusements rides, food stalls and Port Douglas restaurants and bars.
This year’s Parade theme is Tropic & Exotic.
