Church and chocolate eggs may be part of Easter everywhere. But in Ulladulla on the South Coast it also means festival time as Ulladulla comes alive for the annual Blessing of the Fleet Festival.
There will be a myriad of colourful and exciting events held throughout the Festival over the Easter weekend, the celebrations will be as impressive as ever, with the Festival Parade.
The Festival and the Princess showcase the most wonderful imaginative floats, making it one of the biggest street parades in New South Wales.
Lead by St Peter, the Italian community and the Festival princess, the parade is the annual pilgrimage to Ulladulla harbour for the traditional blessing ceremony under the watchful eye of St Peter, the Patron Saint of the Fisherman.
On Easter Sunday thousands flock to see the Parade, the Blessing Ceremony, enjoy the entertainment and activities around the harbour and then marvel at the fireworks display in the evening over Ulladulla Harbour.
The Easter weekend is a time when Ulladulla comes alive to one of the biggest festivals on the South Coast.
It is a time when the family can enjoy a relaxing break from every day life as well as enjoy the celebrations that see people coming back each year for more.
