    Pink clouds, rainbows and unicorns spotted in the Parklands!

Yesterday, Centennial Park was transformed into a spray of rainbow colour for the annual Color Run Dreamworld Tour ! More than 20,000 excited family members, friends – and the odd unicorn – descended upon the Parklands for the occasion and to celebrate the ‘Happiest 5k’ walk or run event in the country! 

The Color Run Dreamworld Tour is all part of the global ‘Color Movement’, a brand new all ages festival series, that aims to engage all Australians, no matter what body shape or fitness level, in new ways to be active, with plenty of ‘epic’ color throws, clouds of dreamy foam and dance tunes included.

Check out some of the great photos from the day below!
