Since 1955, the Moomba Parade has captured the hearts and imaginations of Melburnians, encapsulating the vitality and energy of the beloved festival. Starting near the Shrine of Remembrance and finishing near Linlithgow Avenue, a lively procession of community designed floats, performance troupes and diverse community groups bring a flurry of colour and movement to Melbourne’s St Kilda Road. This year, the parade will feature the designs of seven children who took part in last year’s Design a Float workshop.
The parade will be officially opened with a Welcome to Country address by the Wurundjeri Tribe.

Head to Southgate in the lead up to Moomba to discover the parade’s history, see the 2017 float designs and have a go at designing your own before the festival!
