I participated, as a part of Blacktown Residents Voice Group, in the Blacktown City Parade on Saturday, 31 May, 2014. It was a great fun.
More than 50,000 people were there, either in the parade or as spectators.
The parade was the culmination of the Blacktown City Festival, from 24 May to 31 May, 2014. I am told that approximately 150,000 people took part in this week-long festival.
Blacktown Mayor, Clr Len Robinson, other Councillors, Local Politicians and X-Factor finalist, Taylor Henderson were there too. Taylor sang too, which people enjoyed.
It was big, vibrant and very multicultural.
There were floats from Australian Sikh Association, Blacktown Residents Voice, Ahmediya Group, Christian, Buddhist, Hindu groups. The local Radio station, dance schools and others were there too. More than 100 of my friends including Devinder Daria, Harkirat Sandhar, Indira Devi and Clr Susai Benjamin were there.
It was a great event for the residents of Blacktown and the hundreds of others who came to the parade from other areas.
