Auburn Festival

The entrance to the park with colorful flags atop the various tents.

The Auburn Festival was held yesterday, September 15, at the Wyatt Park located at Church Street in Lidcombe. It was a simple yet colourful and fun event for families and friends to come together and have fun-filled day at the park. This event organised by the Auburn Council brought the diverse communities of its suburbs, namely, Auburn, Berala, Lidcombe, Newington, Regents Park, Rookwood, Silverwater and Wentworth Point,  to mingle with each other creating a more unified multicultural community.

The wide, vast park was transformed into one big carnival that has a number of bazaars, two concert tents, and of course, various rides that cater to mostly children visitors and their adult companions. The bazaars surrounded the whole park selling different merchandises from clothing, to goodies and other snacks as well as toys and decors. Two tents in the middle of the park housed two stages where various artists perform songs and dances for the delight of its viewers.

Most children queued on the different rides as well as the tent that holds the lambs, sheep and ponies. It is where laughter lingered on the innocent faces, as they go on and take those little rides, and fed those farm animals. Indeed, simple pleasures that gives these young minds, simple memories yet, filled with fun and laughter.
