World Games Day comes to Hobart

RESIDENTS from the greater Hobart area will soon be able to enjoy a wide variety of Indigenous sports from around the globe when the Clarence City Council hosts World Games Day on Sunday 21 May.

The free event links with the World Day for Cultural Diversity, which is held each year and celebrates games, sport, food, music, arts and culture from around the world.

Activities on the day will include Wushu, Hurling, Gridiron and Dragon Dancing.

There will also be multicultural food stalls, live music performances from India, Iran and Burma and a Community World Cup soccer tournament.

World Games Day gives the people of greater Hobart the opportunity to celebrate cultural traditions in a unique and active way.

Also on show to watch and enjoy will be the multi-culture dance stage featuring performances from Argentina, Bollywood, China, Cuba, Bhutan, Southern India and the combined schools of Clarence.

Some transport will be provided to the event.
