Note: Due to Level 2 restrictions, we're having to postpone this event. We will inform of a new date asap.
Whanganui Pride Week is back for 2021 and so is our popular Pride Walk!
This is a family friendly event for all to come together and support the Whanganui LGBTQIA+ community. This walk signifies a few things. We walk as a mark of respect for those who are no longer with us, we walk to support those who can't walk with us and we walk as a quite literal forward stepping of the community and its presence in Whanganui.
Meeting at the Silver Ball down by the River Traders Market, at 9:45am on Saturday the 6th of March, we will head off at 10am for a lap around the bridges. The brighter, the better - costumes, LGBTQIA+ flags and colour are all encouraged! We will be doing the traditional clockwise route from the Markets. Heading along the shared pathway towards Dublin Street Bridge, right turn across the Dublin Street Bridge to Kowhai Park. Through Kowhai Park back up onto the riverside path heading towards the Riverside 4 Square/The Red. Across the City Bridge and back to the markets.
Koha/Gold coin donation for the event, with all money going to Pride Whanganui.
