They came, they saw, they sparkled! Last night's Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras brought its world of colour to Sydney’s streets and, along with it, an estimated 20,000 people, who rejoiced as 144 floats and 10,000 participants entertained along the glitter-soaked parade route. 
Now in its 37th year, the Parade brought out the LBGTQI community in all its vibrancy, under the Mardi Gras’ theme of ‘Kaleidoscope’, marching for pride, to represent their communities and champion equal rights. 
The massive parade saw:
144 floats
Two hours and five minutes of viewing time
5.91km Parade train
250 bikes
More than 390 vehicles or pushables
More than 9100 walkers
More than 800 riders
10,000 total participants. 
Reflecting on The Parade, Mr Rolik, Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardis Gras Ceo, said: "Last night's Parade was one of the biggest and best we've ever seen in Sydney! From the show-stopping performance by Delta Goodrem to Baz Luhrmann's epic Strictly Ballroom finale, the night did not disappoint!"
