PLENTY OF T ASTY TREATS TO TRY
TOWNSVILLE foodies will be able to satisfy their tastebuds at the Glendi Festival this weekend.
Celebrating all things Mediterranean, cuisines including Greek, Italian and Spanish will be on offer.
Festival organiser Marissa Papageorge said the event had been rebranded to be more inclusive.
“It’s so we can showcase the cultures of the neighbours of Greece as well,” she said.
Ms Papageorge said the festival provided the opportunity for locals to learn more about the communities in town.
“It’s about expanding their knowledge of the communities within Australia; there’s people of all different heritages living in the country,” she said. “So whether that includes learning about being Greek, or any other culture, is what we hope people can take away from it.
“We want people to be able to experience more and have fun.”
Children will have entertainment provided, with the Nickelodeon Paw Patrol performing.
The Glendi Festival will be running on Saturday and Sunday at Riverway.
Entry is free.
