Australia Day in the City is the major public event to celebrate Australia Day in South Australia held in Elder Park, Adelaide, each year on the 26th of January.
Last year it was the biggest parade in Australia with vibrancy, colour, community and the celebration of national pride surround the Australia Day event in the City .
AJA is participating in this Australia Day Multicultural Parade, with our participation, we are showing our support for Australia. So if you also participate in the parade, that means you are also supporting Australia.
Each group will be provided with paper, Australian flag for participants to wave during the parade. AJA-SA has 15 Japanese flags but there will be more than 30 participants. If anyone has some sort of Japanese flag or other items please bring it with you.
Following the parade, there will be a free concert and many food stalls to enjoy meals. All are encouraged to stay and continue the celebration. The awards will be presented on stage at approximately 8:30pm. At the end spectacular fireworks will be displayed on the Torrens River.
For Yukata beach thongs or sandals are preferable. However the road will be very hot and please be careful not to get sunburnt. Actually the parade organiser asked us to wear closed shoes. So it is depending on you what you wear.
If you have borrowed from AJA-SA (Yukatas belong to Mr & Mrs. Umehara)
After the parade, please take it with you and wash it gently in cold water by hand or machine. Then bring it back to the next AJA-SA Kaiwa Club on Tue, 6 Feb. If you can’t iron it that’s okay , but make sure at least to wash it in cold water.
