Coming together in colourful harmony

City of Gosnells mayor is doused in colour at last weekend's Harmony Colour Run.

Centennial Pioneer Park was covered in a sea of colour last weekend as more than 1000 people took part in the City of Gosnells Harmony Colour Run.

People aged from two to 70 ran, walked, danced and rolled their way through the five-kilometre course as clouds of coloured powder covered them from head to toe.

City of Gosnells mayor Glenn Dewhurst said the sold out event wasn’t focused on who could finish the quickest, it was about movement and celebrating community.

“It was really great to see so many residents coming together to celebrate and share their cultural differences at the Harmony Colour Run,” he said.

“The City of Gosnells is a very diverse and vibrant community with residents who hail from more than 160 countries and speak 157 different languages at home, which makes Harmony Week a particularly important celebration on our calendar.”

The event also donned a splash zone, art and craft workshops, Eco Faeries activities, interactive drumming performances and cultural displays from a range of community groups.
