Some trams will run down Fitzroy St till 10:00am and resume after the march.

We will leave the meeting point at approximately 8.55am to go to our marshaling/waiting area at Ian Johnson Oval.
At Ian Johnson Oval there will be a pride merchandise shop, gender neutral bathrooms, first aid tents, coffee and food trucks.

There will be signs to show you where to go. If you get lost or aren’t sure where to go, please look for one of the Midsumma Festival volunteers in hi-vis /fluro vests. They are really nice and will show you where to go, we are in wave B34.

We are marching in Wave B, Youth, with schools, Minus18 and Scouts Victoria.

After the march – collection point
The march ends in Catani Gardens. We will be there at approximately 12:30pm – this varies each year.
For adults waiting to collect their Guides, a good place to wait for us is at the large tree on the right as you enter Catani Gardens.

We will finish our event at Catani Gardens. We will take a group photo, then you are free to go if your adult is waiting for you or if you are traveling independently (14+ guides can leave independently with prior approval- text Jo/Rosella 0401 257 646).

Please make sure that you speak to me aka Jo/Rosella before you leave so I can check you out.
