The parade, sponsored by the 101 Precinct Community Council, started at Redfern Houses and ended at Bayswater Park where the yearly School’s Out festival was taking place.



Marchers round the corner from Beach 20 Street onto Seagirt Boulevard as they head for Bayswater Park. Marchers round the corner from Beach 20 Street onto Seagirt Boulevard as they head for Bayswater Park.
