Delicious and Delightful bigger than ever for anniversary
CELEBRATING the diversity of culture in our community will be top of the agenda this weekend as Dalby's Delicious and Delightful Festival rolls around for the 10th year.
Initially a celebration of four cultures, the festival has grown to showcase up to 20 cultures through entertainment and cuisine, and has earned itself a place on the top of the Dalby events calendar.
This year the festival has expanded again to include new entertainment including a grand opening street parade, 3D street art, a wellness expo, wish lanterns in the creek and a headlining concert.
Beth Wood, from Dalby Welcoming Community, has been on board since day one and has witnessed the festival's growth first hand.
"For me it's about celebrating all that's good in our community and there are so many special things that make Dalby a really special place to be,” she said.
"Every community needs a significant event, we believe Dalby's delicious and Delightful is that event for Dalby and because it involves such a large part of our community.
"For Dalby Welcoming Community it's all about really promoting that Dalby is a great to live, work and play and the festival this weekend is a great opportunity for us to get out there and play.”
The iconic lantern parade will be back this year with impressive, locally made lanterns along with food favourites from around the world and traditional performances.
The festival will kick off with a concert in Anderson Park tonight, followed by plenty of action and entertainment tomorrow.
