The Whovian Parade 2017 @ Carlton Gardens
Nov 26 @ 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm

For the fourth year running, the Whovian Parade will be on again, for fans of Doctor Who to show off their Whovian pride through the streets of Melbourne!

To celebrate the anniversary of the airing of the very first episode of the very first serial of “Doctor Who” way back in 1963, starring William Hartnell as the very first Doctor, all fans are invited to come along and parade their pride for the legacy it spawned.

Please keep in mind that this is a family-friendly event, costumes and behaviour should be in accordance to this.

Those not wishing to participate in the parade, are free to stay at the Carlton Gardens, as this year’s parade route will be slightly different to previous years and will be ending back at the Carlton Gardens.

Please note that this information is not final and may be based on previous event information. Please check the Facebook event for updated information and rules of participating.
