On Sunday, the 18th of September 2016, the Colo Colo Sports Social Club presented the Aust-Chile National Day celebrations. In its 31st year at Fairfield Showground (south west of Sydney), the celebration is a family oriented multicultural event, that entices both Latin Americans and non-Latin Americans to enjoy the sounds, tastes and colour of South America. With well over 150 dancers, talented musicians, fun rides and jumping castles for the kids, and international food stalls, the whole family was guaranteed a great day out. To top off the festivities, a fireworks display at 8pm made even the big kids happy.
The show, hosted by Christian Guerrero, was an extravaganza of varied musical acts representing all areas of Latin America, including, Sasha and Lex, Latin Kaos, Martinez Akustica Trio with Lilian Guerrero, Victor Valdes and Band, all the greatest latin hits mixed by DJ Agee Ortiz, and dance performances by Latin Dance Australia, Chilean Dance Company, Sabor Boliviano, and Brisas de Peru.
