About this object
The slide shows the Hastings City Council float carrying the Blossom Queen, Helena Hannah, and her two maids, Jill Kelly and Noelene Leonard, in the 1960 Hastings Blossom Festival parade. The women are wearing plastic wraps over their gowns following heavy rain which forced the postponement of the 10am parade to 2pm.
