Read: Auckland Rainbow Parade set for 19th Feb 2022

The Rainbow Pride organisation has announced that the Rainbow Parade will return to Auckland on Saturday the 19th February 2022.

Their press release follows:

After a pretty desolate year of being confined to bubbles, a little bright rainbow light appears at the end of the tunnel.   Taking place on Saturday, 19th February 2022, the Auckland Rainbow Parade is returning to Ponsonby bringing diversity, unity, respect, celebration, inclusion, and loads of colour.

Guardian and Acting Co-Chair Trevor Easton says “We’re absolutely thrilled to announce that for the first time since Rainbow Pride Auckland re-established the Parade for Auckland, we will welcome the addition of motorised (light vehicle) floats making this coming year the loudest and proudest to date.  This allows for a little more creativity and movement along Ponsonby Road which adds an extra element of excitement for both participants and audience.” 

From 5.30pm Ponsonby Road will come alive with a range of pre-parade activations thanks to support from the Waitemata Local Board and from 7.00pm its time to start the engines, kick your dancing heels together and hit play on those sound systems!

“Health and Safety is paramount for everyone participating and supporting the parade,” says the Parade Event Manager Shaughan Woodcock, “We’ll be working with participants to ensure that all requirements mandated by the Government are implemented and adhered to to ensure the safest environment for everyone.” 

To find out more about the parade or to register your business or group head over to rainbowpride.org.nz
