“WE have a diverse community and our events showcase that.”
HARD WORKERS: Muswellbrook Shire tourism and promotions officer Kevin Doherty, Carolyn O’Brien and Matthew Lysaught at the launch of Carnivale in Spring.
With that sentiment, Muswellbrook Shire tourism and promotions officer Kevin Doherty kicked off another edition of Carnivale in Spring.
A big crowd of 80 people converged on the Muswellbrook Race Club on Tuesday night to attend the launch.
From the Carnival of the Cups to the Global Village Motorfest, the Creative Arts Fair to St Heliers Heavy Horse Heritage Field Days, sporting and cultural events, Carnivale in Spring has it covered.
“As well as presenting a wonderful program of exciting activities, the focus of Carnivale is to celebrate our vast diversity and differences, when tipped into the pot result in a rich recipe of delicious culture and community,” Mr Doherty said.
“People from all around the world have come to make Muswellbrook their home, to live and work, to settle and raise their family.
“They arrived only a few days ago or a generation back; they were transported with the First Fleet; they fled depression and hardship with the hope of a better life and greater opportunity for their kids; and they came from beyond the Dreamtime.
“One of the amazing benefits to our community as a result of the continuous migration through all the years is the smorgasbord of great food we have available.
“This explosion of taste has expanded, particularly since the end of World War II.
“Over the next few months throughout Carnivale in Spring, we invite you to share your food experiences with your family, friends and neighbours.
“Carnivale de Cuisine presents an opportunity for your guests to discover some of your favourite tastes.”
Mr Doherty said Carnivale would appeal to everyone.
“It is jam-packed with a host of exciting events and entertainment all throughout spring – from August to early December every year,” he told the Chronicle.
“And, what a weekend we have to kick it all off.
“An art exhibition opens tonight, followed by the St Heliers Heavy Horse Heritage Field Days tomorrow and Sunday, and the annual Eisteddfod Gala Concert and the Saddle-Up Sunday race meeting on Sunday.
“I’d like to thank Carolyn O’Brien and Matthew Lysaught for their assistance in helping me; as well as Stephen Cenatiempo for taking on the role as food ambassador.
“My gratitude also goes to [Muswellbrook Shire] council and the Muswellbrook Chamber of Commerce and Industry.”
