Sister-Cities Melbourne and Thessaloniki
Festival 2016

27 November 2016 from 1:00pm

Thessaloniki Association "The White Tower" is inviting everyone to the Sister-Cities Festival in 2016.

This year we're celebrating 32 Years of Sister-City relationships and as Melburnians of Thessalonian origin we are proud of our Melbourne and at the same time never cease to remember our city of origin. Let us again celebrate our heritage, the cultures of both port cities, the ties that keep our peoples as defenders of freedom and the democratic way of life.

• Traditional dancing groups, school dancing groups, musicians, performers, artists, traders, traditional food vendors and VIP's from the Melbourne City Council, the Victorian Multicultural Commission, the Victorian Government come together to create a euphoric atmosphere. Drawing competition, awards and prizes for winners, dancing lessons and a whole lot more.

• Not to forget the brave Monash Uni researcher Mathew Staios who's undertaking a bike ride from Fed Square to Canberra to raise funds for his Dementia research.

• Then the great White Tower surrounded by white flowers, a project which involved the whole Greek and otherwise community of Melbourne and Athens. This is something not to be missed.

Meanwhile you can taste “Honey dee”, “St Gerry’s”, “Taki’s balls” loukoumades, eat like the Greeks souvlaki from “Trojan Greek Food”, the “Cypriot Greek Grill”, and “Royal Catering” gyros. Don’t forget our wonderful “Procal Dairy” yogurt  “Tornatoes” twisted potatoes, “Kalloni little desserts island”, “Red Hill Marinade” marinated lamb, “Choo la la” nuts and Greek coffee from “Evan’s café”. All by the River Terrace, down the stairs along the Yarra River.

Listen to 3XY Radio Hellas and Rythmos Greek radio for further announcements.

A day for the whole family...
