Queen Carnival, FoxtonMore Info →

Queen Carnivals were a popular way to raise money for patriotic purposes during the First World War. They might incorporate a talent quest, sports contest or concert, and women competed to raise the most money for the cause. The winner was crowned queen. Here, the Foxton Queen Carnival procession proceeds up Main Street with school cadets flanking the horse-drawn float.
