EASTER PROCESSION PICTORIAL: 1957 to 1966

All the fun and glamour of the procession is reflected in the colour slides taken by local resident and amateur photographer Harry Grigg from 1957 to 1966. Mr Grigg was also the MLC for the Electorate of Bendigo during this time. These slides have now been digitised and large colour prints produced for the display. Slideshows will also be running – this time on a television screen rather than a ‘white wall’.

You are invited to come along, relive old memories and help our volunteers to identify the people and organisations represented.

Easter Procession Float 1962The procession has always been a highlight of Maldon’s Easter Fair. The floats are usually very innovative and often humorous, and always the subject of a great deal of planning, design and many hours of decoration by the entrants.

Easter Fair FloatFifty and more years ago floats were even more decorative than today, and of course then as now dressing up, decorating bikes, and making signs was all part of the fun.
