Rugby World Cup victory parade gives Canterbury a boost
October 25th, 2011
After a difficult year interrupted by earthquakes, Canterbury was finally able to celebrate together the All Blacks victory in the Rugby World Cup.
More than 50,000 fans cheered the World Champion All Blacks as they travelled in a parade through central Christchurch, culminating in a huge celebration in beautiful Hagley Park. With many of the players members of Canterbury’s famous Crusaders team this was a real homecoming.
