Belmont’s diverse community will be showcased at the concert which is a free event to be held from 4pm to 6pm at Tomato Lake in Kewdale.

City of Belmont Mayor Phil Marks said the event was an opportunity for residents to enjoy a day of fun and cultural exchange.

‘Stage acts will include dance performances by the Akwaaba African Dance and Drum Group, traditional dance and music from the classical Indian group Saraswati Mahavidhyalaya, the Roztiazhka Ukrainian Cossack Dancers and the energetic Samoa Culture Group.’

Capture the moment with a snap from the photo booth, enjoy a camel ride or take part in the inflatable bungee basketball challenge.

Face painting, balloon sculpting and badge and jewellery making activities will also be offered and food and drink can be purchased.

Harmony Week is held nationally from Saturday, March 15 to 21 each year and is a time to celebrate the social, cultural and economic benefits that cultural diversity brings to Western Australia.
