Bright Rotary Market and Gala Parade

The market has loads of stalls, food vendors and live music and has a wonderful atmosphere as hundreds of Visitors come to town for the market and the ensuing parade. The parade kicks of after the markets and is a fantastic celebration from the many groups that make up the vibrant community of Bright.


Gala Parade Theme

Every year schools, businesses, community groups, motivated individuals and the odd person who has lost a bet, enter the annual Gala Parade through the Bright town centre. It’s an exciting time with teams battling it out for one of the six cash prizes.

Hours and hours of preparation for some (and not so many for others) come together for a proud display of community spirit.

This year’s theme? Well the date has it!

May the 4th Be With You!

Come as your favourite Star Wars Hero, Villain, weird extra character, vehicle or Moon (“that’s no Moon….”) and show the community that you are the true power of the Force!

Entries for the Parade are now open. Hyperspace over the the Gala Parade Entry Form to enter a float.

Thanks to the Businesses and Volunteers who make this Parade possible.
