Having red hair is so rare these days that only one percent of the world’s population sport this dashing hair colour (all the Weasleys included), so it’s fair time gingers got together and celebrated. As the event organisers The Ginger Net puts it, “we are the definition of unique, a rare human unicorn, that cannot be tamed… except with the sweet soothing music of Ed Sheeran.”
The best part? It’s all for a great cause. Seeing as an unhealthy amount of redheads have experienced bullying in the past, the event will be raising money for the Bully Zero Charity with all participants (and spectators!) encouraged to give a gold coin donation during the march.
So join all your ginger mates for a day of red-headed frivolity. Former Big Brother contestant, radio personality and famed ginger Michael Beveridge will be your Master of Ceremonies and will be guiding marchers across the Princes Bridge to Federation Square where a whole heap of fun awaits you (did someone say ginger beer pong?)
The festivities kick off at 10:30am on Saturday April 16 at the Richmond Boatshed on Boatshed Drive in Melbourne’s CBD. Sign up here.
