How are you doing everyone?
Me? well, I jsut have finished summarizing the list of all the multicultural events/festivals held in Sydney for the rest of this year.
I should say it was not an easy work to search, select, edit and organize in a format, but worth it!
Until now, I haven’t quite known there are such valuable and variety of events focused on Sydney’s multicultural aspects!
What the best point of all is …. most of them are free to enjoy!!!
