Pako Festa

from w
Though it was about 40 degrees in the shade, Pako Festa still attracted about 100,000 people to Pakington Street, Geelong West for Geelong's annual multicultural festival. Many people found respite by sitting under trees or ducking into shops, cafes, the West Town Hall, or the library to cool off. I watched the opening Aboriginal ceremony, and a Greek dance class but kept out of the sun. Peceli was at a Presbytery meeting in the morning so we met after 1 p.m. but didn't stay long this year as it was so hot and also our Fiji community didn't perform dances this time. Meanwhile our pets rested in an enclosure in the lounge room under the water cooler until the evening when they went outside again. It is a very very hot day and for a while we will try and forget the imbroglio going on in Canberra.
