The festival theme featuring music and yummy food marked the ending of a week of celebration at the 2014 Bendigo Festival of Cultures and I was lucky enough to be able to spend the afternoon enjoying the festivities.
MC AXL Taylor encouraged people to say hello to someone they didn't know and the Bendigo people took this to heart. I met several people yesterday who were willing to talk about their love of food, why they chose Bendigo to live and little of their life story; it was just that kind of day.
A drumming workshop was one of the highlights for me as together with new friend Wendy, we had a go.
Lots of diverse entertainment on centre stage made it hard for me to leave; hence I ended up staying all afternoon – a real treat.
This great festival was coordinated by Loddon Campaspe Multicutltural Service which is based in Bendigo.
