Colour and culture at annual festival

QUAY St was transformed into a hub of bright colours, catchy tunes and delicious smells at the weekend when the Bundaberg Multicultural Festival took over.

Hundreds of people attended the festival where stalls selling everything from clothes to churros kept the folks entertained.

Brisbane woman Anne Hadley attended the festival for the first time yesterday and said it was a great event.

"It's lovely - I'm really enjoying it," she said.

"I would come again."

Bundaberg woman Katie Knott was at the festival with her daughter Jenna, 4, and son Cooper, 7.

"We come every year," she said.

"I keep coming back because of the cultural diversity, the wonderful food and the great atmosphere."

Jenna and Cooper said they were having a great day with the food, face painting and the rides topping their list of favourite activities at the festival.

Anna Hitchcock from the Society for Creative Anachronism was dressed up in costume at the festival to promote the club's coming open day.

"I think (the festival) is fantastic," she said.

"People really seem to be enjoying themselves."

Mark James was working the pizza ovens at the Fire Flavas stall and said business had been good.

"It's been busy," he said.

"We're from the Sunshine Coast and this is our first year but I reckon we'd come back."

One of the crowd favourites was Gold Coast band The Twine made up of mum Melani M, dad Damion Sun and son Obi Sun who performed for their fourth year.

"People are just so supportive of us and people say such nice things about us," Melani M said.

"It's been amazing."
