Loud and flashy and FUN
Australia's largest mulit-cultural festival in Geelong's liveliest street bursts out all over again this Saturday 23rd February. Going strong since 1983, the all day street parade-party-gig-market-good time features visits from the stars of Home and Away and My Kitchen Rules. Street Stalls are in action from 9am, but things really start jumping with the exuberant street parade from 11am-12 noon. Apart from the TV stars, you can see dance groups (at last count, that included, Spanish, Serbian, Macedonian, Hungarian ad Scottish troops) hear choirs, orchestras, DJ's, soul and more. There is a children's stage (yes, with Bananas in Pyjamas I'm sorry to say), grown up music stages and loads of yummy food. What more could you want for a sleepy Sunday in February?
You're right! My date was right but day wrong - it's DEFINITELY THIS SATURDAY EVERYONE! I have requested an amendment - thanks for letting me know. Looking forward to trying one of your yummy Bretzels there. Thanks for letting me know, J.
Pakot Festa is this SATURDAY NOT Sunday! Bretzel.biz will be there like every year with yummy Bretzels made fresh at Weiser's Bakery and served into the street hot from the oven: Original German Bretzels, Cinnamon Vanilla Bretzels and the amazing chocolate filled Bretzels with Sprinkles
