Fes­ti­val starts with a roar

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

It’s loud, it’s colour­ful and it’s back to take over the Pon­sonby Rd strip.

The Auck­land Pride Pa­rade will see more than 55 floats and hun­dreds of per­form­ers travel the length of Pon­sonby Rd to­mor­row.

This year’s pa­rade has a later start time of 7.30pm. It kicks off at West­ern Park and runs for 90 min­utes be­fore wrap­ping up at Three Lamps.

Per­form­ers and floats will be dressed as ev­ery­thing from tani­wha and Chi­nese dragons to all-pow­er­ful deities to fit the gods and mon­sters theme.
