The annual street parade through Wanaka brought out a good crowd on a fine and cool evening to cheer on 16 floats, superhero dogs, zombies, fire engines and purveyors of free ice cream.

Wanakafest began on Thursday night with a fashion show, continues today with beach cricket, tugs of war and a wine festival, and finishes tomorrow with a polar plunge, cardboard boat race and the annual plastic duck race.

Mitre 10's cowboys and indians won the float contest. Pictured are last year's winners, the zombies of the Wanaka Cub pack.
