Sunday was the fete held in the Victorian Precinct which was closed off to cars. I only spent three hours there in the afternoon so I missed a lot of the street entertainment - check out these excellent photos on Facebook to see more than I did (plus more parade photos).
I can offer Morris dancers for watervole, acrobats, and Queen Victoria with a difference.

Competitors had to saw through blocks of Oamaru stone (a limestone), what our Victorian buildings - and my house - are made of
The explorer, cross-dresser #2, did well but didn't win.
The queen and duke. She's so familiar - I know her from somewhere but it totally escapes me.
And now we come to a magnificent Queen Victoria, cross-dresser #3
Steampunk Morris dancers
A nice family shot
The Twisty Twinz...
... who did acrobatics on stilts
and managed to fold themselves into that box
