The week concludes with the Carnival on Collins. Collins Ave, which runs through the suburb of Edge Hill and in front of the Cairns Botanic Gardens, is blocked off and a variety of stalls appear with people selling all sorts of things.
The Carnival began years ago as a "Gardens" activity but it has enlarged to the extent that it is entirely run by the Cairns Regional Council.
Plant sales are a major part of the Carnival with all sorts of tropical plants for sale.
A few highlights.
At the end of the day maybe 20,000 people attended. the weather was prefect this year (it often rains)
and it seemed that everyone had a great time.
