Opening Night Parade

The inaugural festival parade in 2013 was a great success. Parramasala is looking to make the 2014 opening night even bigger and better. It is time to dust off those colourful costumes, slip on those dancing shoes and join in the colourful caravan of drummers and unicycles; dancers and camels; dragons and flame throwers.

Whether you’re an individual entrant, a community walking group, or a local dance troupe with a spring in your step we want to hear from you!

A celebration of cultures for the whole family, the Parramasala opening night parade is about us – showing who we are here in Western Sydney, wherever we’re from.
