    I've already posted some photos in the Summer thread, but here's a little movie of the Marriage Equality float getting the love as it went by.

    Yep, that one was unexpected.

    Nice to see the Segway Express won Best Drag or Drag Group.

    And they managed it without high heels.

    I thought Akl Samba deserve a special mention. Apart from the fact I know two of them; Martin (who contributed here once before) and Carol, who has been in our threads too. They must be one of the busiest musical groups in town. They were at the 20/20 games in both Auckland and Hamilton, then joined the parade on Saturday. No wonder they posted this on their Facebook page. Just having a wee lie down. Nice set there too, if you can see it.

    And they managed it without high heels.

    Sensible shoes, even.

  • Islander,

    Really good to see NZDF personnel there! Marching with precision & quietness and totally justifiable pride-

    They were the unquestioned stars of the parade -- warmly applauded all along the route.

    Perhaps they're easily confused with the gay ninjas?
