One of the world's biggest AIDS charity events, the Life Ball is unprecedented on the international stage. This laid-back party night featuring out-of-the-ordinary live acts celebrates the beauty of life itself, sending out a loud and clear signal in the fight against HIV and AIDS. The flamboyant fashion show, which takes place before the ball at City Hall Square, is free and open to the public. Each year it attracts up to 40,000 spectators.
