2016 Anzac Day Dawn Parade and Service of Remembrance

Upper Hutt Returned and Services Association Incorporated and Upper Hutt City Council welcome you to join us at the official Upper Hutt Dawn Parade and Service of Remembrance on Monday 25 April from 5.30 am.

Anzac Day commemorates those who have died at war serving New Zealand and it honours returned servicemen and women, past and present.  This year we observe the centenary of the first Anzac commemorations held in 1916 across New Zealand and Australia.
