Fans in beanies and gloves have braved Dunedin's freezing cold to cheer on New Zealand's America's Cup-winning sailors as they passed through the city.
Following a huge turnout in Auckland and crowds in Wellington and Christchurch, Dunedin residents also lined the streets in large numbers on Thursday to catch a glimpse of the Auld Mug.
Helmsman Peter Burling travelling in an open tray car was a special hit with those along the route from the Dental School, through George Street, to the Octagon.
At the Octagon, Dunedin City Council mayor Dave Cull honoured the sailors with a civic reception watched on by residents waving Kiwi flags and children sitting on their parent's shoulders.
Earlier, there had been fears celebrations would be dampened by Dunedin's weather.
Snow and ice had settled on the city's hill suburbs on Wednesday and closed the Otago Polytechnic.
But while snow still lingered in some places on Thursday morning, public services and buses were up and running by 10am, as the weather front moved further up the country.
Dunedin's celebrations are the last parade stop for Team New Zealand.
