2008 Mardi Gras Parade
The Fire Still Burns….
Our Bus looked resplendent in red and gold lettering sewn on opposite coloured banners. Our sincere thanks to Ken Mears for all his efforts. We now have the ground work for a better one next year. We had heaps of visitors on our Bus – 3 from UK, 4 from Brisbane Qld, 4 from Perth WA, a straight, married couple from Adelaide SA, 1 from Malta and 1 from New Caledonia, plus our guys and Mrs Madrigal. We had 53 passengers in total, who were all blown away by the magnificent response were received from the large crowd lining the Parade Route.
The next two photos show the banners in great detail that we used. Gold lettering on Red background : Red lettering on Gold background
MAG is pleased that we will be able to add to these banners for next year. We received a number of compliments on how the Bus looked - you could not miss us !
