Calling all gingers and friends! This October, the iconic Buderim Ginger Pride Rally which is in its third year, will be coming home to the gingeriest place on earth and home to everything ginger - The Ginger Factory in Yandina, Sunshine Coast in Queensland.
Hot on the heels of a successful 2017 event, which saw close to 1,500 redheads unite, this year’s rally aims to welcome even more copper-tops to paint the town red!
Armed with banners and flags, gingers will follow in previous year’s footsteps by marching to celebrate their uniqueness and promote the anti-bullying message.
The annual rally will be held on 6th October at The Ginger Factory, an iconic Sunshine Coast tourism attraction and home of Buderim Ginger. Registrations are now open, and the rally will kick off at 10.30am with all walkers treated to a Buderim Ginger Energy Rehydration Station to cool down post walk.
This year, gingers will enjoy entertainment in the form of blues and soul music, from Blues Arcadia in addition to a whole host of ginger-themed stalls, competitions and activities, including a ginger garden (serving Buderim Ginger Beer), ginger beer pong, ginger pride photobooth, ginger kids zones with face painting and balloon artists, and prizes awarded for the best pre-made gingerbread houses.
Redheads will also be able to get their hands on many coveted Buderim Ginger prizes throughout the day, with those brave enough being invited to enter the hotly anticipated ginger jelly eating competition, a sight not to be missed!
Andrew Bond, CEO Buderim Group said, “The Ginger Rally is a fantastic event to celebrate uniqueness in the community and everything that’s great about gingers. I’m so excited to get behind this event and its support for the anti-bullying message.
“This year we have worked hard to build on the success of previous years and as such it promises to be the biggest yet, with some incredible ginger-themed activities, competitions, food, drink and more.”
The Ginger Rally will shortly announce their 2018 charity partnership. In previous years charity partners have been closely tied to anti-bullying, a cause close to many gingers hearts and one fully supported by Buderim Ginger. Keep your eyes peeled for the announcement!
