Each Year, Geelong holds a multicultural festival on Pakington Street, the Pako Festa. They have a bit of a parade, and some musical and dance acts. General street festival mayhem ensues, as people wander to find their friends, and then to find food. There were many different ‘ethnic cuisines’ on offer (does calamari in a cone count?), though I was told by my local friends that the number of food stands this year was far fewer than in previous years.
