With what can only be described as a ginger phenomenon (as rare as a blood moon), the 29th of April 2017 saw Federation Square covered in a sea of ginger and red for the 2017 Ginger Pride Rally! We smashed the history books with over 1400 copper-tops flocked together in Melbourne for a day of celebrating the super powers of those lucky enough to have the MC1R (unicorn) gene.
Now we're back in 2018 and flipping the script! Pencil in Saturday the 6th of October for the Ginger Rally, but this time we're bringing it to the home of everything ginger...The Ginger Factory on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland. Needless to say we will have plennnty of SPF 50+ on hand to make sure you can rock the red whilst staying sun safe (ain't no one got time for lobster tan). So why are we changing venues? Our vision was to bring ginger pride, a celebration of uniqueness and message of anti-bullying throughout Australia, mixing it up and sharing the love. Besides, it doesn't get more ginger, than gingers at the gingeriest place on earth!
The Ginger Factory is like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, but for gingers! It actually makes ginger products onsite (yes in a factory) along with a park featuring lush rainforest, plenty of shade, their own ice-creamery (*squeals of delight*), a ginger train, ginger village and even a ginger boat ride!
More details will be revealed soon, but we will still be having a walk as part of the day to march for Ginger Pride (nobody puts ginger in the corner!). Plus, the finishing festival will be filled with even more activities than the last 2 years including a ginger jelly eating competition, a ginger beer garden, ginger beer pong, a ginger pride photo booth, live music, ginger kids zone and more!
