Rain fails to dampen NADOIC in Mareeba
WET weather didn’t stop the community from attending the Mareeba PCYC NAIDOC community event on Tuesday.
Dancers, stalls, music and free flu shots were in abundance for those that attended with a free sausage sizzle, fruit and water bottles being given away.
The highlight of the day was the various groups of kids and adults performing dances.
Mareeba PCYC branch manager sergeant Mary-Anne West said it is was a great day and it was fantastic that the dancers had the confidence to get up in front of a crowd of people.
“It’s was truly an amazing day,” she said.
“A big thank you to the school teachers, principals and school support staff that attended today to help the kids get ready and to make sure they came on their holidays.”
Mareeba dancers Brett Wason, Aaron Riley, Wayne Snyder, William Riley and Alfred Hunter performed a traditional dance at the 2017 NAIDOC celebrations on Tuesday at Arnold Park.
