Enjoying the sun a couple of blocks away from Northbourne Avenue this afternoon, I became aware of an odd noise coming from that direction so I went down to investigate.
It turned out there was an enormous convoy of trucks travelling down the Avenue, all blasting their horns.

I vaguely remembered this was some kind of annual charity event (for kids with cancer?) and that they get so many trucks it normally goes for about 30-45 minutes. Most of the trucks’ cabs were full of smiling, waving people and many had children in them.
There were several families parked along Northbourne to watch the spectacle, including this well-prepared one.
If you’ve got more details than my half-remembered ones, go on, share your knowledge with the world.
UPDATED: Ralph has sent in his own observation of the convoy from Duntroon.
