Kicking goals on a festival front
WHETHER it’s getting in touch with your inner Earth Mother, lighting up at Australia’s biggest lantern parade or rocking out by the beach, festivities are not limited to football finals this long weekend.
Event co-ordinator Marielba Bortone and Vandana Khullar will be among those at the free Pachamama (Earth Mother) Festival in Bonython Park today from 3pm.
Inspired by Pachamama, a goddess revered by people of the Andes, the festival will feature local vendors, live music, wellness workshops and a kids zone from 3pm, culminating in a fire ceremony with drummers and dancers at 7.30pm.
“Pachamama aims to create a community where local producers and artists have the opportunity to show their talent and services,’’ Ms Bortone said. Also on this weekend are: Distillery Days. Renmark will come alive tomorrow from 3pm-10pm when Twenty Third Street Distillery hosts Australian music legends Kate Ceberano, Daryl Braithwaite, Russell Morris and Mark Gable.
