Were you aware that Spanish is the mother tongue of an estimated 450 million people? It's more than English and comes second to Chinese. If you'd like to know more about Spanish, don't miss the Spanish Language Fiesta to celebrate the beauty of this language. Head to George Johnson Lane, North Melbourne on Saturday 6 April 2019 from 11am to 4pm.
This FREE event will have Spanish lessons, live music and other forms of entertainment, delicious food, activities and more. People of all ages and backgrounds are welcome to celebrate the beauty of the Hispanic culture. Don't forget to tell your family and friends and bring them along for a fun-filled day together.
As you can se from the program above, there's a lot going on, from Spanish Cinema to a theatre performance at The Legion. The North Melbourne Library is running an introductory Spanish Class, and a play-based approach for toddlers and parents to learn Spanish. The language is also incorporated in a Spanish story and rhyme time with kids making their own souvenir to take home at the end of the session. There are time honoured board games for the young ones like domino, chess, bingo cards or jacks and more.
George Johnson Lane is where the party is with arts and crafts, face painting, live music, music and dance workshops, food and market stalls. Have a hand in putting your mark on the Language Wall and check out the paintings at an art exhibition by six Spanish speaking members of the Melrose Art Group.
