On Saturday and Sunday before the music starts, you’re invited to check out the moves of some of Darwin’s eclectic community dance groups at Dancing in the Park. Given the times we’re living in, we won’t be encouraging crowd participation, but there is still plenty of fun to be had at these 15-minute dance performances. Grab a bite and a drink, check out some happening hip hop, enjoy an AUSLAN choir and travel around the world without leaving Festival Park.
