Pako Festa

from Peceli
Once again we took part in the Pakington Street ethnic festival known as Pako. This was on last Saturday in Geelong West. Usually about 100,000 people attend. There is a huge parade then food stalls, children's entertainment, dancing and singing on stages or as roving buskers. The pictures here were taken waiting for the parade to start, one dance group, some Rotary Exchange students, and five of us from Fiji waiting for the other ten to turn up. It was a good day as usual and we met many friends there.

Wow...I didn't realize the Fijian community in Geelong was quite so large and well established!

Actually the Fijian dancers at Pako are friends from Melbourne but we do have a Fiji Geelong Friendship Club (website included which is years old and not updated after Billy from Bombay (that's another story) lost the password and we haven't fixed it!) that has been going for about 20 years.
