The 61st annual Sunshine Festival returns to Geraldton on Sunday — and this year it has an outer space theme.

The longest-running event of its kind in regional WA, The Sunshine Festival is perhaps best known for its much-loved float parade that makes its way down Marine Terrace each year.

Most of the festivities will take place at Stow Gardens on the foreshore from 10am-6pm.

The festival is free and suitable for people of all ages.
