Thousands took to the streets in Wellington to celebrate Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori bringing Wellington lunchtime traffic to a standstill as school kids, parents and teachers were joined by many other organisations.

Members of Parliament also joined the march as the masses were singing, performing haka, accompanied by drums and brass bands, with people carrying placards with this year's catchphrase "Kia Kaha te Reo".
