Continuing a long and proud tradition of public celebrations in the Heidelberg area, the Grand Parade kicked off the Kids ArtyFarty Fest on Sunday 17 March 2019 with a flourish of colour and movement.

Marching down Burgundy Street into Sills Bend, the Grand Parade provided a lively opportunity to bring Banyule's diverse groups together in a celebration of creativity, community and childhood!
Sponsored by The Heidelberg Central Traders, the day began with food, performance and great vibes at 'Breakfast on Burgundy'. The parade itself was themed and prizes were awarded under the following categories:

Our parade theme for 2019 was Our Identity: Celebrating Who We Are'.

Entrants chose to celebrate this by interpreting their school motto.. conveying a formative event in their club's story... showcasing aspects of their group or school they are most proud of.

This year we also facilitated Drum Out! - a workshop by professional creative arts company 'Fun Arts' to 5 selected schools in Banyule, free of charge. This included a whole school assembly performance, a workshop with instrument making and Parade choreography and a massed school percussion down Burgundy Street with all 5 schools together! It was full of colour, vibrancy, drumming and amazing enthusiasm from over 100 students!


Proudly Supported by our Sponsors
