THE creativity and ingenuity of Chinchilla groups and businesses once again made for a fantastic Melon Fest Parade.

Floats of traditional melon style were interspersed with those highlighting the festival's achievement of 25 years.

Maranoa MP David Little Proud and Western Downs Regional Council Mayor Paul McVeigh judged the floats and had the difficult task of choosing winners for each section.

The Sturgess Farms float was decided to be the best in the fruit and veg section.

Western Downs Civil was named the best trade and business float.

Best historical display went to a vintage tractor and Chinchilla Golf Club's float was voted most humorous thanks to the lollies being chipped off the back by a golf club.

St Joseph's Catholic School was awarded best school float and the Chinchilla Scouts named the best community group float.
