The parade, produced by Mike Mullins, ran twice daily for the duration of the Expo. The lunchtime parade featured floats of giant food items, while the evening parade was themed around fantasy. The floats were accompanied by a troupe of performers, called the Expo City Ensemble.
After Expo 88, many of these costumes, including this harlequin hat, were sold to the Darling Harbour Authority and used in public entertainment at Darling Harbour, Sydney.
