Rockhampton Cultural Festival Kicks Off for 2013

By David Bell

Rockhampton residents are in for a treat on August 11 as as the 2013 Rockhampton Cultural Festival kicks off once more.

The festival is a great opportunity for those with real estate in Rockhampton to take a visual (and culinary) tour of different countries from across the globe, all on display at the Heritage Village on Parkhurst Road.

Tantalise your tastebuds with a dish from an exotic country, look out for the amazing Chinese Lion Dancers or get your toes tapping to the beats of world music band Mzaza – there's plenty to enjoy at the festival this year!

There'll also be free rides for the kids, activities, dance workshops and many other things to take part in, so Rockhampton residents are urged to come on down from 09:00 on August 11 to take part in all of the festivities.

"The Cultural Festival is such a great opportunity for local multicultural groups and organisations to share their traditional food, music and customs with the entire community," said Rose Swadling, Communities Committee chair, in a July 29 statement.

"The day is such an extravaganza of tempting food from across the world, of singing and dancing, and celebrating a whole range of traditional activities that our community can enjoy or even participate in."
