Margaret River’s inaugural Margi Gras experienced a big turnout last month, with more than 700 people attending the public marriage of Sunny-Michelle and Rebecca Hannan and an after party at The River Hotel.
The main event was held at the Shire of Augusta-Margaret River gardens on Fevbruary 10 and featured food vans, performers, a face painter, bouncy castle and unicorn rides for the kids.
“The support shown by the community has been nothing short of overwhelming,” Margi Gras founder Ms Hannan said.
“It really made me feel proud to be a member of this community and I’m honoured so many came out to celebrate equality and be a part of our wedding. Margi Gras has shown that Margaret River is a welcoming place for LGBTI holidays and wonderful destination for same-sex weddings ... I highly recommend it.”
