After what has been an incredibly tough, life-changing year for everyone on this planet, we invite you to join us this Labour Weekend for our annual all-inclusive friendly festival - A Rainbow in the Village - Paekakariki Pride Festival.
Celebrate our wonderful diverse rainbow communities in the fabulous seaside village of Paekakariki. All welcome. The Festival kicks off on Friday night with a Meet & Mingle at the Paekakariki Bowling Club. Saturday it's the famous Paekakariki Pride Parade aka the unofficial World's Shortest Pride Parade then the wonderful Dance Party at St Peter's Hall.
Sunday a Rainbow Picnic with Scruffs Dog Show at Campbell Park, then the fierce, funny, and colourful Quiz night at the Bowler.
We finish the festival with a mid-day "Take the Plunge" swim at the Surf Club.
