Strathmore Park Christmas Festival

Timothy, Ella, and Alicia Jamal enjoy some sausages in bread from the barbecue fundraiser of the women’s touch rugby team.

Families came together to enjoy the Raukawa Community Centre’s Christmas in the Park on Saturday. The party was in full swing as people joined in the celebration of Christmas and the community came together to organise the event. The day was filled with performances from local musicians, choirs and dance groups, food from sausage sizzle to chop suey were offered, fun activities including a bike track for the kids and the chance to explore inside a fire

truck. There were also stalls which offered jewellery, clothes, T-shirt design, face paint and knitted items. Strathmore Park locals took part in the activities throughout the day and joined in with the performers with singing and dancing. The event was community organised with support from the council. The organisers brought a unique quality to the event and ensured the festival reflected the diverse community it was set in.

The Samoan Dancers entertain the crowd. Toulata Pala and Gese Tan offer their Aute chop suey for lunch.
