Spreading message of peace

RUTH Power is happy with the success of the 2013 Peace Festival at Queens Park.

The one-day event attracted a crowd estimated at 2000.

"It was good to have the football as a central part of the activities this year," Mrs Power said.

"There was a good range of multi-cultural performances and a lot of children's activities."

She said the camel rides proved popular.

"It was the first camel rides for the festival," she said.

Melerine Yew was one of many performers on the day and played a Chinese zither, a seven-string instrument.

Parent Nic Dromgold said the kids had a ball at the Peace Festival.

"They are really into the circus stuff," he said.

The Warwick Aikido Club was demonstrating its craft on mats in the centre of the Peace Festival area.

The club is affiliated with Aiki Kai Australia and gave out many brochures to prospective members yesterday.
