Lae Show 1968. Scouts and Cubs marching in the Main Parade.

This oval was also used for the annual school's athletic carnival.

I proudly point out that Lae Primary School (Coronation Drive) won the primary school carnival in 1970. Yehhhhh.

Scouts and Cubs waiting to march onto the Main Oval, 1968.
