416ACU actually do give a toss about Tunarama

Home to the world-famous Tuna Toss, the Port Lincoln Tunarama Festival is held annually on the closest weekend to the Australia Day holiday in January – and local Army Cadets were there in force this year.

With a wide array of participation events, arts and cultural displays, local market stalls, and some of the freshest seafood in the world, there truly is something for the whole family to enjoy!

Port Lincoln-based 416 Army Cadet Unit certainly thought so, preparing their own float to participate in the Port Lincoln Community Bank Street Procession.

One of the highlights of the Festival and an event not to miss – The Port Lincoln community go to great lengths decorating themselves and their floats to showcase the many local business and community groups in the procession.

It is always colourful and fun, and often very professional as entrants vie for best float.

This year included some floats from community arts, sporting clubs, local business groups – and 416 Army Cadet Unit.

The procession took place at 12 noon today, 28 January 2017.

SGT Cameron Veraart sent us these photos from inside the heart of the action.
