60,000 people expected for HERO Parade - 21-Jan-1996
Hero Festival organisers are expecting up to 60,000 people at the parade along Ponsonby Rd on February 17.
Organiser Julia Durkin says Ponsonby businesses are being asked to help create a party atmosphere on the day of the parade. She said "we'd like to see HERO day specials and rainbow bunting. You can dress Ponsonby Rd in a way you could never do with Queen St."
