Mardi gras parade

FROM human to canine and everything in between, Mount Isa clubs, schools and businesses helped kick off the 2012 Isa Rodeo with a colourful Mardi Gras parade.

Thousands of people flocked to the street all vying for a good position to cheer on the parade participants. 

Floats decorated in this years Diamonds and Dust theme were a crowd pleaser. 

Local school kids belted out popular songs TNT and Call Me Maybe while Centacare employees put on a Slim Dusty and Neil Diamond concert. 

Paws, Hoofs and Claws were another favourite, delighting the crowd with their quirky dog float and canine friends.
