Huge crowd flocks to Harmony Day

PEOPLE of all shapes, sizes and colours converged on the Botanic Garden for the Multi-cultural Harmony Festival.

More than 5000 people enjoyed beautiful weather and fun entertainment put on by Coffs Harbour City Council. Organiser Susan Clarke said this is the third year the event has been held and it is bigger and better this year.

“We’ve got twice as many people this year,” Mrs Clarke said.

The fun and frivolity was spread over two locations with children enjoying their own area complete with circus acts and face painting. The main stage hosted everything from boot-scooting to steel drums and a Maori choir.

With more than 50 nationalities on the Coffs Coast, Mrs Clarke said there was a great response to the day.

Coffs Harbour City Council councillor John Arkan was a stall holder at the inspirational day.

“Harmony isn’t a word, it is made,” Cr Arkan said. “And it’s here today.”
