Fisher’s Ghost Festival 2005

Every November Campbelltown stages a week long ‘Festival of Fisher’s Ghost’. The main event is a Saturday afternoon parade along Queen Street.

It could only happen in Australia! Is there ANYTHING wackier than an over-dressed Medieval English ‘Town Crier’ leading a stinking hot Aussie summer parade, celebrating a dubious ghost, with bikini ladies loaded on the back of a ute?  🙂
