IF you have missed out on Belmont’s biggest festival of the year so far, there’s still plenty more to come to keep you entertained.

All Belmont residents are invited to a free barbecue marking the fifth season on the Noongar calendar, Kambarang, at Volcano Park on Tuesday, November 22, from 10.30am.

Held by the Aboriginal and Cultural and Linguistically Diverse Community, it will also celebrate the International Day for Tolerance.

The City of Belmont’s first book, Belmonster, will be launched on November 24. Bring the kids along for storytime and a monster feast at the Ruth Faulkner Public Library forecourt.

Tickets are free but bookings are essential and places are going fast.

Saving the best for last, the festival finale will be held on November 26 with free activities and entertainment for everyone to enjoy.

Highlights include the international food festival celebrating the unique cultural offerings of Belmont’s many communities.
