Rainbow Week has arrived here at Viaduct Harbour! We have teamed up with Rainbow Pride Auckland and Pride Pledge to bring you a week full of Pride-themed fun. The whole precinct has been emblazoned with rainbows as we kick off our week-long festivities. As the sun sets throughout the week, a spectacular light show designed by Angus Muir will illuminate the sea wall and trees around the Viaduct every night from 7-11pm. Rainbow Week will run from Monday 17 Feb – Sunday 23 Feb.
Check out the video above of Pride Pledge Director Martin King telling us all about Rainbow Week at Viaduct Harbour.
