Numbers were down from previous years I was told but still some interesting outfits & people attended this famous & much loved event in Maryborough Queensland Australia. Some pics & stuff for your enjoyment below
Interesting article below from the Fraser Coast Newspaper where it was said that nice older guys are treated with suspicion . When I was covering this event with my sturdy Olympic hand camera & was videoing some of the patrons of this event in the street it was not appropriate that I was called a paedophile by one of the girls because I was filming the event & the group walking the streets for my web site www.frasercoastcentral.com.au
Sad when a citizen [an older one at that] cannot record an event such as this without some misguided person making comments that tarnish the integrity of the event.
ooo <<<<<<<VIDEO YET TO BE INSERTED HERE
I am just grateful that this is probably a one off incident by a confused individual attending.
Most attendees were certainly a pleasure to praise in them adding colour & vitality to the city of Maryborough Qld
We must make allowances for drunken behaviour so we move on.
This comment is just to support the comments made below in the Fraser Coast Chronicle article
HAS the presumed innocence of older men been lost in today’s society?
