A planned Pride Night at the Rainbow's End theme park has been cancelled after pre-sales of tickets did not meet the threshold required to make the event viable. Organised by Rainbow Youth for the Auckland Pride Festival 2017, the $43 a ticket event this Saturday would have been a glbti-exclusive evening with the park opening from 6pm especially for the event. In a just-released statement Rainbow Youth says it was "hugely looking forward to the event and had received a large amount of indication of support. We are thankful to those who have purchased tickets, and you will be contacted soon to arrange a refund. We continue to be hugely thankful to all those who do support RainbowYOUTH in many different ways."
