Harmony Day is fast approaching, a day in the calendar to celebrate the uniqueness of Griffith's cultural diversity.
There are a number of activities and events scheduled throughout the week and there is something for everyone to get involved.
The passionate volunteers from the Multicultural Council of Griffith are busily preparing for their barbecue being held at City Park, Sunday March 21.
A sausage sizzle, traditional food and some entertainment will be part of the festivities on the day with Intereach running children's activities.
Anyone is welcome to bring a plate of food to share no matter what their cultural background with the barbecue starting from 12.30pm.
