Unleash your ranga power for the second rally celebrating carrot tops

If you’re a redhead, bluey or ginger, it’s almost time again to take to the streets and paint the town red at Melbourne’s 2017 Australian Ginger Pride Rally at Federation Square. Appropriately hosted by Buderim Ginger, it's a day for fiery friends to gather and outnumber the rest of the non-ranga population.

This year the inaugural Ginger Pride Rally drew over 1,000 loud and proud gingers along with their biggest fans, friends and family. As Melbourne gets voted in as host city for the second time, we will get to celebrate the most recessive hair colour once again. It is also a day for shouting out and supporting so-called 'ginger issues' which exist in Australia. The Red and Nearly Ginger Association (yes, the acronym is R.A.N.G.A) is a special interest body for the flaming red and strawberry blonde, who have partnered with the rally to help identify the issues which matter most, such as anti-bullying and skin cancer. 

Attendees (ginger or non-gingers are welcome!) are asked to register to participate at the event. Festivities include tunes from ginger-led band, the Vanns, and Singles Events Melbourne will be hosting a ginger speed dating event to connect orange-headed folks together. There will be rounds of ginger beer pong Event sponsor Buderim Ginger will be giving away their ginger beers to thirsty rangas on the day.

Dress up for the rally and the best-dressed ginger will walk away with a $200 prepaid Visa card and a year's supply of Bunderim Ginger beers.
