The Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex group was joined by family and friends in the city’s Harmony Park before the parade.

Youth groups Habonim Dror and Netzer were also part of the Dayenu float . Marchers embraced the dress code of blue, silver and white with Dayenu rehearsing the simple choreography movements at the park to Sister Sledge’s “We Are Family”.

This year’s float consisted of 6 boxes with letters spelt ‘F-A-M-I-L-Y’ on the back of a 1 tonne ute. The theme for the float was ‘We Are Family’ and was heartily accepted. Tom Kleiner marched alongside his parents Elliot and Lisa Kleiner who joined their son for the parade..

The dancing group of white, silver and blue  paraded its way to Taylor Square before heading towards Fox Studios with enthusiastic spectators lining the parade route.

The Dayenu marchers participate in the dancing high-fiving onlookers as they went.
