World culture festival

THE 11th Brisbane Valley Multicultural Festival in Esk is almost upon us with service and community groups all gearing up for the Annual Street Parade.

The Street Parade is certainly the forum for various groups to “Strut Their Stuff” down the Brisbane Valley Highway.

The Toowoomba Caledonia Pipe Band will lead the parade in their full glory with the bagpipes singing out all over Esk.

The Street Parade will commence at 9.30 sharp from the Esk Football Grounds and travel past the festival into Highland Street and then onto the Highway where they will showcase themselves through town and then turn left into Edward St and travel back towards the festival.

Festival Coordinator Desiree Mahoney said, “This year's festival would highlight the 150 Year Celebrations of Queensland becoming a state as well as the various recreational community groups, with local Living History Groups, Heritage Cars and Vintage Motor Bikes.

The Street Parade is going to be quite a show this year as it is expected many groups will be vying for the prizes with the Festival theme of “Reflecting Our Past” for the Queensland Celebrations.

The Festival plans are now in full swing and most market stalls are now all full.

The Multicultural Concert is all finalised and visitors to the region will enjoy a colourful day of music and dance, along with Blacksmiths, Living History and Medieval Displays.

The all day Multicultural Concert will again showcase local talent from around the region and there will be a great array of International Cuisine to tantalise the taste buds.

Don't forget that the Festival is a free event for the family so keep Saturday, July 25 free and come and have a great day out.
