Proserpine parties for Tour de Cure
BALLOONS, streamers, smiling faces and bicycles lined the streets of Proserpine Main St on Saturday morning to cheer on the pelotons of riders.
Local school children decorated bikes, scooters and prams to roll through the street with the riders on day two of the ten-day voyage.
Community group Quota International was keen to celebrate the event, rising early to decorate the windows of CE Smith and Co Chartered Accountants.
Local legends Shona Russell and Janelle Eastwood lead the second and third pelotons of riders through their home town with pride.
School children joined the Proserpine Main St leg, with colourful attire and crazy helmets.
To date, this year's Tour de Cure has raised $2 million dollars for cancer charities.
That number will continue to grow as volunteers shake their buckets in the name of donations.
