Pacific Communities Festival a Great Day!


FOGARTY Park came alive with song, dance and food last month at the Pacific Communities Festival on the Cairns Esplanade.

This year, the festival, which has become an annual event, coincided with Peace Week.

Pacific Communities Council, which will have a specific focus on representing islanders living in Far North Queensland.

South Cairns is always well represented at this great cultural celebration!

Groups from Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, Tonga, Samoa and the Cook Islands all took part in the festival, which had a specific focus on bringing together the youth and celebrating their cultural heritage.

Young performers took part in singing, traditional dance and fire twirling with live music and free islander food entertaining the huge crowd.

The performers were so full of pride and these events that build confidence and self-respect in our young people are so important.
