Three people will face charges after an incident in Nanango on Thursday morning that stunned residents attending Nanango’s Anzac Day commemorations.

About 8:30am, while families lined Drayton Street ahead of the Anzac Day march, an apparent fight broke out on the footpath near the corner of Little Drayton Street.

The incident occurred in front of a number of witnesses, and was not far from where South Burnett Mayor Kathy Duff and other dignitaries were preparing to take the salute.

A witness told southburnett.com.au she saw three men involved, one who appeared to be stopping other people from intervening while the other two wrestled on the ground.

Police officers who were attending the event broke up the fracas.

At least one elderly witness was left shaking and in tears after the incident.

A police spokesperson said three people had been charged with public nuisance.

He said the three were known to each other.

A 44-year-old Nanango man has been charged with one count of public nuisance and will appear in the Nanango Magistrates Court on June 10.

A 32-year-old Nanango man and a 39-year-old Nanango woman have both been served a notice to appear for public nuisance in the Nanango Magistrates Court on May 13.
