Naughty nan Zita Doblie celebrates her 90th birthday at the Sydney Mardi Gras.

YOUR STORY: Toowoomba-born and bred Zita Doblie reached her 90th Birthday milestone on March 2, last week.

Not your average senior citizen, rather than celebrating with a quiet family dinner at the local golf club or a refined high afternoon tea, this "naughty at 90" great grandmother asked that she be taken to the annual Mardi Gras in Sydney instead.

As the oldest "belle of the ball" in attendance, Zita was swarmed with attention and affection from passers-by.

Happy birthday Zita!
