The Māori Language commission has run two parades in the past two years to launch the beginning of Māori Language Week, celebrating the language as a living spoken language. The theme for this years Māori Language Week will be 'Kia Kaha te Reo Māori' following on from the success of last years theme 'Kia Ora te Reo Māori'.

The parade will depart from Parliament Grounds at midday and travel to Te Ngākau (Civic Square) for a celebration. The distance is approximately 1.5km and estimated travel time is 45 minutes. Event entertainment will start at 1PM at Civic Square.

We look forward to brightly decorated, colourful, themed and visually appealing walkers and floats dressed to celebrate the purpose of the parade – te reo Māori. This will make the public in the streets take notice of the parade and help increase awareness of te reo Māori.

There is a simple registration process for people, schools, and organisations if they want to take part. You can participate by walking, vehicle or by having a vehicle and float. Please see the registration form for the criteria of floats being accepted. Floats and vehicles to assemble at Parliament Grounds at 10AM-11AM. If you are part of a walking based group, please assemble at 11:30AM.

If the parade is cancelled due to bad weather, a decision will be made on 9 September and the public will be notified on this day, and also from 6.30AM on Monday 10 September via Facebook and Twitter.
