10 Mahuru 2018 | Te Whanganui-a-Tara
Thousands of school kids, parents, organisations, businesses and government representatives blocked the main street through Lambton Quay to celebrate te reo Māori.
This year's Māori language parade was bigger than ever, with choruses of waiata ringing out to the crowds watching, school kids performing haka, and hundreds of people carrying signs printed with this year's theme, Kia Kaha te Reo Māori
Parades were also be held in Gisborne, Rotorua and Auckland in 2018.
