International Flavours - the return of a Festival favourite
by Linda Carr
The Wooden Boat Festival seeks to celebrate all nations with a seafaring history. Our northern neighbour, Indonesia, has more than 17,000 islands whose life and customs depended on the “perahu”, the countless type of indigenous sailing vessels.
In March 2016 we will again have the pleasure of witnessing the lovely dancers in full costume from Geelong’s Indonesian Association, with a performance on Saturday and Sunday (see the festival program for times). If you have children who love to dance they will be enthralled to see the group’s children taking an integral part in the performance.
There will also be a food van serving authentic Indonesian food at reasonable prices all weekend of the festival hours.
