Every year Brisbane has a Multicultural Festival in the Roma Street Gardens.There were many people and many tent stalls, most of them selling ethnic food. There was also non stop entertainment in seven venues. Music and dances from around the world. Many people wore their national dress.
A Sicilian musician discussing the pipes that he plays with an interested African.
An Indian lady doing Henna hand painting. It was wonderful to see so many people from so many different cultures mingling, sharing customs and interacting with one another in such an understanding and friendly way. They are all Australians now and it makes you wonder why the whole world can't behave like these people at the festival.
South American music.
These girls were giving out programs. I'm not sure who they were representing but I wouldn't want too tangle with them. There were so many different cultures, too many to show here.

After we checked out most of the stalls and some of the entertainment we had to make a choice as to which country would we go for lunch.
The Danish pastries looked delicious, the Dutch, the Argentinian, the French, the Indian.......
...the Spanish and so many, many more to chose from. We ended up deciding on Vietnamese.
