No not a Princess, just Dame Edna John being blown a kiss.

The ‘Blessing of the Fleet’ Festival began today in glorious sunshine with the Milton Ulladulla ExServo’s Club Parade. The Princes Highway was packed with an enthusiastic crowd of well wishers. A number of Scottish Bands took part in the parade among a host of floats each carrying a beautiful Princess.

The history of the Blessing of the Fleet goes back to its first staging in 1956. Most of the Fishing Trawlers decorate their boats for the ceremony which is afterwards followed by many family activities.
