Event description

Description

Seymour Railway Heritage Centre invites you on a special vintage diesel haul heritage train tour to Geelong on Saturday 23rd February. Enjoy a family day out at Geelong’s annual Pako Festa, with complimentary Devonshire Tea.

Pako Festa, is Geelong’s much loved free, annual community street festival - the biggest of its kind in Australia. It incorporates an extravagant street parade featuring around ninety floats and hundreds of performers representing forty-five affiliated ethnic communities and around sixty other community groups and organisations.

The street will be lined with Stalls selling traditional foods, arts and Crafts. There will be six separate stages in the precinct offering performances of music and dance, as well as interactive workshops and exhibitions.

Pako Festa offers a unique opportunity to celebrate in an arena of ethnic diversity and harmony, as well as gaining an appreciation of the great variety of artistic and cultural Expression within Geelong’s multicultural community.

Sample over 20 local diverse cuisines, the smells and sounds will take you to another world. Free entertainment for the entire family and, of course, the great Pako Festa parade with spectacular colours, movement and creativity from around the globe.

Also available is a coach transfer to Lorne. Set on the Great Ocean Road alongside the picturesque waters of Loutit Bay, Lorne invites you to uncover a cove of indulgent little pleasures, promising an affair of endless romance.

Travel to Pako Festa in our Heritage Train hauled by Blue and Gold heritage locomotives. Travel in comfortable 110-year-old wooden compartment style carriages. The train will also have a kiosk on board for purchase of food and drinks.

This will be a great day out for the whole family.
