A lantern parade in commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the great inland floods will take place later this month.
This will be the second time paper lanterns commemorate the event, the first was after the flood clean up in 1990.
The lanterns will be made though community workshops and in our local schools.
Mayor Denis Cook says the lantern parade signifies our community pulling together.
He says the memory of the floods is still raw for many residents who still remember being woken early on April 21st 1990 by rising waters. He recalls his own devastating experience.
“My house is a metre off the ground and it went to my window sill, so it was quite deep, it destroyed my house and everything in it.
“Anything like my built in cupboards and the furniture, anything but chipboard, the water absolutely destroyed it. So I lost all my furniture.
“We we’re in a real mess for ages,” he says.
The paper lantern parade coincides with the commemoration of Anzacs Centenary and Mayor Cook says the weekend will be a time for all of us to reflect.
