There will also be free children’s activities including Batik Art and lantern making activities.

City of Rockingham Mayor Barry Sammels said the festival had proven to be a big hit on the City’s annual calendar over the past several years.

“When we hosted the first festival in 2016 we attracted about 4000 people,” he said.

“Last year it was 7000.

“The interest we’ve already had for this year’s event suggests there will be even more people attending, so we’re very pleased by how popular the festival has become.

“There’s nothing like sharing food to create a sense of community.
