Various groups joined hands to present an exciting afternoon of entertainment at Intercultural Day at Charles Hoey Park

Various groups joined hands to present an exciting afternoon of entertainment at The 39 Days of July annual Intercultural Day at Charles Hoey Park Sunday, July 17.

Starting with a performance by Judy Hogg’s Celtic Rhythms Dancers that showcased dancers from charming beginners to those who showed the polish of a decade or more of training, these performers never fail to please the crowd.

This year, the second group up was Mbira Spirit and Amy and Tafadzwa Matamba surprised everyone by bringing along a group of friends to join them onstage for an upbeat presentation of old-time country music.

The event ended with a show by the Viva Mexico troupe from Victoria. These folk dancers always bring colourful costumes, interesting dances and exciting music from their homeland to thrill the crowd and this year was no exception.
