Tuesday night saw the annual "Toga Parade" of First Year Otago University students along the main street of Dunedin. Fine weather saw around 2,000 students join in the fun, about double last year's turnout.
Bed sheets from the city's student halls and hostels were converted into a variety of toga styles, and it was good to see an abundance of laurel-wearers this year (the leafy head-dress).
There was also a marked increase in the number of spectators and egg-throwers/water bombers along the route from the Dental school to the Octagon, which resulted in a bit of carnage and a much quicker parade as the first years tried to dodge the flying bombs...
