Lots of talent to shine at Shepparton multicultural extravaganza.By John Lewis
Shepparton’s multicultural rainbow will shine next month when the Emerge at Twilight Festival takes place with a change of venue and a bigger, bolder format.
The festival builds on last year’s inaugural Emerge Festival at Eastbank with a move to Victoria Park Lake and includes food stalls, arts and crafts, children’s activities and music performances.
It is being billed as a ‘‘spectacular new hallmark event for the region’’.
City of Greater Shepparton Mayor Jenny Houlihan said the Emerge at Twilight Festival would be a fantastic way to showcase the city’s multicultural communities.
‘‘There will be something for the whole family. I encourage you to come down and experience the range of cultures our community has to offer,’’ Cr Houlihan said.
Emerge is on Saturday, March 2, from 4
There will be a youth program showcasing young music and dance talents, a multicultural soccer friendly match and professional BMX and skating demos and clinics from Skateboarding Australia.
There will also be creative arts and lantern-making workshops, henna tattoos and hair-braiding.
Greater Shepparton City Council and Multicultural Arts Victoria have developed the festival.
‘‘This year’s Emerge promises to be a fantastic program that will unearth a whole lot of amazing new local talent from all corners of the globe and that will inspire local communities to come together and share cultures, ideas and stories,’’ MAV project manager Anita Larkin said.
