Paul Jameson, Mullumbimby.
On Sunday morning I went along to the street parade that was part of the very fine Mullum Music Festival. The Festival was a great event with excellent performances, wonderful street life and good organisation- a shame about the patchy weather but there is not a lot you can do about that.
As the street parade was winding down I was chatting to some 70+ year olds who’re holidaying from Bowral and Scotland and who had accidentally joined the crowd not knowing that the Festival was happening. They were quite impressed with what was going on and, ton cue, the Dustyeskys launched into one of their Russian revolutionary songs from the RSL balcony. The Bowral connection said WOW- that is so good. Then the crown opened up and the Cassettes flash dance mob did their highly energetic and entertaining routine in the middle of Dalley St.
My acquaintances were totally blown away and had grins from ear to ear and one said ‘I can really see why you like living here’.
I felt so proud to be a local and to be a part of such fun and creativity that brings such joy to so many people.
Thank you so much to Glen and the team for organising such a great event- see you next year.
