The Rainbow Pet Parade will return to Fair Day in 2017!
Hosted at Gorman Arts Centre, the finest and fluffiest (or not!) of Canberra's pups will come together to strut their stuff.

Many people say they are going to do things and then never do them. I am guilty of this as much as the next CEO. However, as we approach the end of another financial year and an ever changing political environmentt with uncertain funding we have many things to achieve and the Council is well-placed to achieve them.
