Anzac Day dawns on Monday 25 April

Waitakere City’s popular Dawn Candlelight Parade on Anzac Day will be held this year at 6am (assemble at 5.45am) on Monday 25 April.

The parade is becoming an established event for the City – last year’s parade attracted 5,000 people holding candles behind the Cenotaph at Waikumete Cemetery.

Representatives from each Returned Services Association in Waitakere will parade at Waikumete. Each RSA will host its own parade and a council nominee will lay a wreath at each of 10 local parades.

This year the Auckland Boys’ Choir will lead the singing at Waikumete. They will sing a recent composition “Sons of Gallipolli”* as well as hymns and the NZ national anthem. Singer Catherine Reaburn will also feature at the event.

Waitakere Mayor Bob Harvey, councillors and local Members of Parliament will be at the Waikumete service. Reverend Judy Cooper will be the officiating minister.
