There was only one place you could feast on Indian curries, treat yourself to desserts from Afghanistan and wash it all down with a Tongan-inspired drink in Wagga on Saturday night.
The Victory Memorial gardens attracted 10,000 people who united to celebrate the nations that make Wagga a cultural hub.
The fifth annual Fusion Multicultural Festival is tipped to have been the best yet.
Wagga City Council’s Cultural Officer, Tracie Miller, said the atmosphere at Fusion15 was unbeatable.
“I think it really was one of our best ones ever,” she said.
“Even though we did have a bit of rain, it didn’t deter the crowds.
“They were still out there dancing and eating.”
Sikh-inspired rapper L-FRESH drew the biggest crowd while The Dancing Accountant had people mesmerised as he grooved in the water fountain to L-FRESH or held impromptu dance parties.
Improvements on last year allowed for an easier flow through the food village, which featured cuisines from India, Burma, Sri Lanka, Poland and Afghanistan.
New attractions, including weaving demonstrations and The Wired Lab, kept visitors entertained.
“Fusion is all about trying things you wouldn’t normally try,” Ms Miller said.
“It’s a great way to celebrate all the difference that make the community fantastic.
“We are starting to think about Fusion16 already.”
