Our parade theme in 2019 is Our Identity: Celebrating Who We Are'.

You may choose to celebrate this by interpreting your school motto.. conveying a formative event in your club's story... showcasing aspects of your group or school you are most proud of.
However you interpret the theme, be creative, bold and theatrical! Or keep it simple and showcase your group's colours.

This year - aligning with our theme - we have a particular focus on the role Volunteers play in creating our community's identity. So i your organisation, club, school or business relies on the invaluable support of volunteers then we encourage you to come out and march (or ride a float) in celebration!
