This is a wonderful opportunity for our community to shine and throw a bright light on the resilience and compassion found in the Hunter region. Our Parade entry this year is Hand-in-Hand United We Shine sending a message of inclusion and love by representing the groups of our Community.  The Whitney Huston song Bring Me a Higher Love will be our song we will be dancing to in the parade.

Come join us as a parade participant and show the world your inner glittering and dazzling light! Be part of the electric vibe that can only be experienced at the 2022 Mardi Gras Parade!
