Sunny weather, happy faces and incredible dance moves. That's what Saturday's event at the Botanical Gardens was all about.
The Wagga African Association hosted the COVID-safe event at the Music Bowl to boost community's mental health and shine a light on women's issues.
Sophia Dywili, a member of the advisory committee, said the pandemic had taken a toll on the community's mental health, and Saturday's event brought everyone together.
"Today we came together, women in particular, to de-stress after the period of isolation," she said.
"We just wanted to come together, connect and relate to each other and our culture.
"Dancing is one of those cultural things in Africa that really brings people together."
Dr Dywili said they also had speakers talking about mental health and impacts of the coronavirus crisis.
She added that it was also an opportunity to allow the younger generation to learn and participate in the multiple facets of African culture.
