Auckland prepared to host America's Cup parade if wanted

From First Up, 5:53 am on 18 March 2021

30,000 people turned out at Auckland's Viaduct yesterday afternoon to watch Emirates Team New Zealand make history and celebrate St Patricks Day at the same time. There was a good fireworks display last night. Team New Zealand has asked for there not to be a ticker-tape parade to celebrate the victory. The team says it doesn't want Auckland ratepayers and the Council to foot any more bills. Auckland's Mayor Phil Goff joined Nathan Rarere.
