Balwyn Multicultural festival day

The band had a great day playing for the public at the Balwyn Multicultural festival at the north Balwyn shopping centre last Saturday 22nd February 2014.

We arrived by tram, striking up as we stepped off and formed up to commence a street march.

The band marched through the streets playing a variety of popular pipe band tunes, stopping from time to time to circle up and play on street corners, in front of the village cafe and on the steps of the arcade.

We would like to thank the organisers of the event for giving us the opportunity to participate in this wonderful festival, and “the village cafe” for their kind hospitality on the day.
