A celebration of world culture

LOCKYER Valley residents took a trip around the world on Saturday night.

The “many faces” of the Lockyer Valley gathered at the Gatton Shire Hall for the Lockyer Multicultural Festival for a night of colourful costumes, diverse music and fantastic food.

The night was a great success with more than 200 people sharing the festivities.

As well as colourful and comprehensive displays of various cultures and ethnicities from around the world, the festival included many performances.

Didgeridoo performances, fashion parades and musical productions from around the world were a huge success with the audience along with the assortment of food from a wide variety of cultures available for purchase.

Among the items were the Lockyer Celtic Pipe band, Vietnamese song by Phuoc Boettcher, Pacific Islander Dance by Louise Malaki and music by the Blues Boys.

The Lockyer Multicultural Association would like to thank the cooks, sound and lighting helpers, Gatton Police Service and those that helped set up.
