Winner of the last year's edition of Australia's Got Talent, the famous hip-hop dance and pop music group Justice Crew is due to perform on Sunday 11 September at the Strathfield Spring Festival in Strathfield Park.

Hosted by the Council of Strathfield, the Festival is the biggest Spring event in the Inner West and Justice Crew's performance is a great way to celebrate Strathfield's cultural diversity, the theme of the Festival.

Originating from the humble suburbs of the Inner West, Emmanuel Rodriguez, Lukas Wildrok, Samson Cosray Smith, Solo Tohi, Len John Ruela Pearce, John Len Ruela Pearce and Paul Eric Merciadez come from a diverse ethnic background with dancing as their common passion.

Prior to their dancing, the members of the group have faced lots of hardship in life but their dancing has proved to be life-saving.

Their debut single,"And Then We Dance" was certified Gold by the
Australian Recording Industry Association and their second single, "Friday to Sunday", platinum.

Other main stage performers include the Japanese Taiko ensemble of TaikOz, the musical talents of Natalie Colavito and SweetMojo, The Greek Dancing Group of Nassibian Dancers, Belinda's Art of Dancing among others.

The fast-approaching Festival has promises of doubling the fun with the event being spread on two days and has everything from rides to lantern parades, a large array of international delicacies, fireworks, outdoor film screenings and much more.

According to the Mayor of Strathfield, Cr Tony Maroun; "The Strathfield Spring Festival is a well established community event, and this year, by celebrating cultures and adding more features to the event, we're expecting the Festival to attract a huge crowd."

The dedicated corner for the kids, The Kidz World, is sure to entertain with Ruby Star and her circus workshop, the antics of Manik Jones and his loopy assistant Loolar, mesmerising illusions from Adrian Dean, Toot the Clown and Feldergast the Jester and J'mime Aloud the resident mime.

The Festival will also include a series of martial art demonstrations such as taekwondo, gumdo, judo, hapkido and karate.

A huge fireworks spectacular will light out the sky at night and will set the scene for Movies in the Park - a giant outdoor Bollywood Movie Screening.

And finally, a large selection of international delicacies will cater for all rumbling stomachs.

So, make sure not to miss out this free family fun day and celebrate multiculturalism in all its aspects.
