On Saturday, 28 February, tens of thousands of people will converge around Pakington Street, Geelong, to celebrate the 33rd Diversitat Pako Festa.
Pako Festa is the largest free celebration of multiculturalism in Australia. People attend the festival and enjoy cultural performances, activities, food from all over the world and artists from all walks of life.
This is truly a festival that unites the whole community with local ethnic communities, schools, local businesses, community groups, street traders and artists all coming together to enjoy an integral part of Australia — its multiculturalism.
I encourage anyone who has the opportunity to attend to do so and not miss out on what is always a highlight on the Geelong events calendar.
