Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

IF you have ever wanted to travel the world but been short on funds or time, then the Cock­burn Cen­tral Town Cen­tre As­so­ci­a­tion (CCTA) might have a so­lu­tion.

The lo­cal not-for-profit group will bring var­i­ous flavours and cul­tures to the train sta­tion precinct this Satur­day evening as part of its in­au­gu­ral World Food and Mu­sic Fes­ti­val.

Among the at­trac­tions will be food trucks of­fer­ing South African, Turk­ish and In­dian cui­sine, Chi­nese lion dancers, Span­ish fla­menco dancers, lo­cal band Big Girls Blouse and Lit­tle Pill: The Aus­tralian Ala­nis Moris­sette Ex­pe­ri­ence.

CCTCA chair­man Paul Weir said or­gan­is­ers had been plan­ning the event since De­cem­ber.

“Cock­burn is pretty mul­ti­cul­tural, so we wanted to do some­thing that re­flected that,” he said.

“We want peo­ple to come down and see what is on of­fer.

“It will be a real fam­ily-friendly event.”
